Volume One Special Coverage: Pulling Together While Staying Apart


Sky high hair: UW-Stout snags fashion show award

A collaboration between interior design students and an apparel student allowed UW-Stout to take home some hardware at Minneapolis’s annual Fusion + Fashion Show –  first place in makeup and hair.

Entrants were challenged to create an ensemble using only materials from the building design industry. The test didn’t seem to deter the UW-Stout participants as the group attempted a design resembling the Crystal Court in Minneapolis’s IDS Tower. And the hair (the hair!) certainly speaks for itself … with the finishing piece emulating the architecture and main ceiling within the tower.

Congrats, Stout! The design team consisted of Autumn Ash, Mary Brandt (shown above!), Samantha Swanson, and Nicole Kluck.
