FINA Department Apparel Design & Merchandising students in collaboration with the Fashion Network Association and the SF State DPRC, hosted the 27th annual student fashion show Runway 2022 Bloom on May 6th, 2022. On the runway, senior designers showcased their final apparel collections which were constructed by hand. One of our senior designers, Claire Gonsalves' collection was “inspired by female exotic dancers” and her goal was to “encapsulate beauty, thrill, and freedom without society's preconceived judgment”. Overall, the mission was to exemplify diversity, equity, and inclusivity in the fashion realm without compromising art and creativity.

Following the show, the designers and their guests came together to honor and celebrate all of the designers. Special congratulations to the following student designers who received special recognition for their designs:   

  • Eduardo Lopes
  • Samia Siddiqi
  • Rachel Suen
  • Anil Tuli
