At this event, students and visitors could take part in the 13th annual Full Fashion Panic runway fashion show put on by MCAD at Mechademia. A staple at the yearly Mechademia event, Full Fashion Panic offers the chance to see up-and-comping fashion from designers from all over the nation. This year’s show, which was organized by SGMS/Mechamedia and produced by Samantha Rei, featured five different designers: Lucie Biros, Maria Dang, Kathleen Moua, Salem’s Scissors, and Apatico. Through the different lines, the designers were able to take the viewer to many distinct places. These very talented designers were able to create five distinctly unique collections that capture this year’s theme of “World-Building”. All of the designer’s hard work and thoughtfulness to the theme was made apparent throughout the show. The show was full of gorgeous colors, various textures, and many beautifully handmade headpieces and accessories.

After the runway show viewers were able to interact with the designers and host Samantha Rei with a question-and-answer session. Here, viewers were able to hear more about what inspired the different collections from the designers themselves, along with learning what upcoming and future projects the designers will be working on. The show was a fantastic way to view and support new and upcoming talent in Minnesota’s blossoming fashion scene!
