The History Department is proud to present our fifth annual Historical Project Runway! In this event, teams of three (majors or non-majors welcome) will compete to accurately and creatively represent historical events through fashion. Clothing and design materials will be provided. Come strut your stuff historical style!


Part 1: Design Competition
At 5:30 pm, teams will be given a historical theme to plan their runway outfit (materials provided) that will later be judged by an esteemed professorial panel of judges. To compete in the designing competition, please email with a team of 3 and submit the names of your team members as well as a team name.

Part 2: The Runway Show
The culmination of the teams’ efforts, the runway show, will begin at 7:00pm. If you cannot participate as a competitor, please arrive at this time as an audience member. Teams will model their designs on the runway, after which there will be a critique of each team’s design by our panel of judges, concluding with the announcement of the winning team!

As the winning team, you will not only win pride and a sense of good work, but will also win a $50 Red Light Clothing Exchange gift card!


Refreshments will be provided!  See you there!
