Each year, industry critics lend their expertise to our graduating student throughout their final semester as they prepare for the fashion show.  Nine major designers are working with the students as mentors and critics by visiting classrooms throughout the semester to critique the students' work and ultimately, to select the most exceptional garment from each category for special citation.
