Fashion Institute Rolls Out Two Days of Shows, Workshops

Organizer Heidi Gress kicks off the Fashion Institute's annual runway show.

Salt Lake Community College’s Fashion Institute held its annual spring runway show, dubbed 4th Dimension, April 20 for the graduating class of designers.

The SLCC Fashion Institute offers three different degrees in fashion design and merchandising, training students for careers in design, merchandising, costuming, technical apparel design and custom dressmaking. Students learn about fashion sketching, creative design, computer applications, draping, pattern drafting and more.

This year’s showing of senior collections at South City Campus featured the following 13 designers: Kelly Burress, Abigail Sacher, Olivia Mason, Courtney Starr, Elise Woolstenhulme, Tanisha Hamil, Helen Elia, Monica McNeill, Roxana Sevilla, Megan Ulch, Courtney Andrews, Kaytlin Sacher, Olivia Sunday and Brianna Day. The show is a unique opportunity for amateur models and aspiring hair and makeup artists to learn from working professionals in each of those fields.

The Institute also held its annual Project Catwalk the previous day for budding designers from high schools around Salt Lake Valley, offering several workshops during the day and a runway show in the evening. Students from the Institute and high schools received awards from a design contest.

High school students receive instruction and a tour of the Fashion Institute during Project Catwalk.

Below are highlights from the runway show at South City Campus and from Project Catwalk.
