Future of Fashion

The 2022 Future of Fashion runway show, presented by Macy’s, will take place on Wednesday, May 11, at 7 pm.

The show will feature looks created by a select group of 2022 graduates of FIT’s Fashion Design BFA program, spanning five concentrations—knitwear, sportswear, intimate apparel, special occasion, and children's wear. Designs are inspired by personal stories and address wide-ranging themes such as heritage appreciation, sustainability, gender-neutrality, accessibility, and mental health awareness.

Come back to this page on Wednesday, May 11, at 7 pm for the livestream of the event.
