RUNWAY 2022: Reimagined featured 70 student designers and 150 behind-the-scenes personnel. This marked the first year since 2019 that RUNWAY was held fully in-person, though the show was also made available virtually through a livestream.

“Putting on four shows in two nights (live and virtual) was no small feat,” said senior co-director Madison Cormier. “It was important for us to run a show that aligned with the fashion industry while still allowing room for our team’s creativity. As a director, I wanted to make sure that the fashion designers were showcased in the best way possible.”

On May 6, undergraduate student designers showcased their work in ten distinct categories: sweater knits, swimwear, athleisure, menswear, lifestyle separates, evening wear, tailoring, cocktail, special occasion, and non-textile.

The following evening featured Lasell’s senior fashion design and production majors, who each presented a full clothing line that was conceptualized and developed over the course of the year.

Students design and produce a two-night event, transforming the University’s athletic center into a fashion runway and hosting over 1,200 guests for evenings full of innovative fashion design.
