Kent State Univeristy announced partnership with Michael Kors to present the Fashion School’s 2017 annual Fashion Show (FS2) that will be held at Rockwell Hall with “Reverie” subtitle on April 28 and 29, including an extent of three runways.

The show will contain an in-depth showcase for Fashion School design and merchandising students’ work.

To inspire students to be featured, they are required to submit their work from athletic wear to evening gowns that will be assessed by industry professionals, wherein collections that will be chosen are to be presented on the runway.     

Given the partnership notion, students are eager to plan and organize the two-day event, which significantly extended their impressive idea for the fashion show.

"Eighteen students from the Fashion School have conducted their industry internships with the company," said Fashion School Director J.R. Campbell in a news release.

As many have seen a great opportunity between Kent State University and Michael Kors’ partnership, a student co-producer for the show Senior Megan McDonald has joined the internship in the men’s division last summer.


Hence, Kent State alumnus and Michael Kors Men’s President Don Witkowski are set to be inducted into the Fashion School Hall of Fame as part of the show’s events, and will be presenting a free, public lecture in the Rockwell Hall Auditorium on April 28.   

"[Witkowski's] leadership roles at Donna Karan, Nautica, John Varvatos and Michael Kors prove that he is an active and much-sought contributor to successful brands," Campbell said.

"Those who have worked with Don speak about his ability to get things done in high-productivity, high-stress environments. He is an excellent example of the ethos of Kent State University."
