NEWS MFAH and HCC to present Fashion Fusion May 19

The roadway meets the runway in this year’s Fashion Fusion, a fashion competition inspired by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, exhibition Sculpted in Steel: Art Deco Automobiles and Motorcycles, 1929–1940. 

Open to young designers in the award-winning fashion program at Houston Community College, Fashion Fusion challenges students to create original garments as contemporary responses

to the automobiles on display in the exhibition. Presented by the MFAH and HCC, Fashion Fusion culminates in a

professional fashion show and awards presentation on Thursday, May 19, in the museum’s Cullinan Hall.

Twenty garments created by HCC’s emerging designers will be featured. A distinguished panel of judges will assess the students’ work based on theme, construction, and overall presentation, and announce the top four winners. Winning garments will be displayed in the MFAH’s Kinder Foundation Education Center for 10 days following the announcement.

The Museum’s Happy Hour Thursday moves to Cullinan Hall in celebration of Fashion Fusion, with extended hours from 6 to 9 p.m. Before and after the fashion show, visitors can enjoy cocktails and visit Sculpted in Steel, on view in the Brown Foundation Galleries in the Beck Building.

Admission to Fashion Fusion is free. VIP tickets for seating are available for $25 and include one free drink at Happy Hour Thursday. Exhibition tickets for Sculpted in Steel are available for $23. Tickets are always free for MFAH members.
