The Human Thread was delighted to be a part of Katwalk 2016, the annual spring fashion show for St. Catherine University Apparel, Merchandising, and Design students. Opulence showcased the design creations of junior and senior apparel design students, and features sustainable garments created by the sophomore class.
Katwalk allows students to gain experience in a variety of responsibilities: marketing, design, vendor relations, budgeting, fundraising, merchandising, modeling, event planning, and time management. For design students specifically, the professional photos of their garments as well as the design process/experience build their design portfolio, and ultimately, helps them jump start their careers.
The department’s mission is to offer a rigorous program of study and prepare professional and ethical leaders with an innovative mindset and professional voice. Grounded in social responsibility, strong business and community collaborations prepare students for transformational leadership, life-long learning, and a commitment to sustainability in a global context.
