"'Pulse' accurately defines the rhythmic mode of exploration in dress that results from the investigation of volume, structure and fabric detailing as it applies to the body,' said Barbara Trout, professor of textile and apparel design in the College of Education and Human Sciences.

Trout and professor Wendy Weiss instruct the students in their advanced studio courses. The innovation of the student work stems in part from an integration of experimental textile design with an architectural approach to apparel design.

The focus of "Pulse" is the senior students' experimental work. Student designers will also premiere their individual ready-to-wear lines that reflect skills in draping, digital printing and color forecasting. A broad scope of garments including outerwear, street wear, evening wear and men's wear will be shown.

"The work to be showcased is some of the most creative and relevant fashion ever seen at this university," Trout said.

Doors will open at 6:45 p.m. and open seating tickets will be on sale at the door. There is a $5 general admission charge at the door; admission for students and those over 65 is $3.
