Spectrum – University of Texas Fashion Show
* “Spectrum”, a powerful and all-encompassing word, fits this year’s senior design students perfectly. By displaying each individual’s work as a piece of the overall spectrum of collections, all the designs come together in a fluid, powerful way that displays a new wave of technical and intelligent design skill.
