Marymount University will honor fashion designer Eileen Fisher tonight during their Portfolio in Motion 2012 student fashion show and reception. Fisher will be honored as their “2012 Designer of the Year.” She was chosen for her commitment to fair labor practices and her sustainable, collaborative business model which aligns with Marymount University’s mission.
Portfolio in Motion 2012 will take guests into a “Gilded Forest.” This setting will showcase the innovative jury-selected garments that were designed and made by students in Marymount’s Fashion Design program. For the first time ever, the fashion show will also feature alumni lines. The creative elements of the show’s production are the work of the University’s Fashion Merchandising students. Every aspect of the show is the product of student imagination and effort including the models who are Marymount students.
