SCAD FASHION 2021
TRANSCEND THE RUNWAY AT SCAD FASHION 2021
Redefining the fashion show for a new virtual age, top SCAD student collections make their global debut at this visionary showcase, immersed in digital worlds created by motion media design, film and television, and sound design students and alumni. The supersensory experience includes the world premiere of the high-concept fashion film The Awakening, directed by SCAD graduate Jess Farran (B.F.A., photography, 2017).
In addition to the collections showcase and film premiere, SCAD FASHION 2021 includes public virtual events across four days:

They discuss von Furstenberg's celebrated career, her leadership in the fashion industry and beyond, her establishment of the DVF Awards, and her latest book, Own It: The Secret to Life, an A-Z manifesto for personal growth.
- Friday, May 14 to Sunday, May 16: Shine in one-of-a-kind finds from the SCAD Jewelry Trunk Show. Shop new collections by SCAD students, alumni, faculty, and staff or restock your favorites at this virtual makers' market.
