Students concerned with two very important things – looking good and caring for the planet – were in the spotlight as the Fashion Merchandising Association recognized Fashion Week in March.

The theme for the week was “Green is the New Black.”

James Smith, a sophomore fashion merchandising major who organized the week’s events, said that with designers making more eco-conscious decisions about their pieces, the theme seemed appropriate.

“We thought we should focus the week on something we all care about,” he said.

Fashion week events included a Q&A with fashion professionals, prizes on the Oval, and a runway fashion show featuring vintage and organic clothing.
