The O’More Fashion Show is a highly-anticipated annual event where four years of rigorous Fashion Design education culminates in an impressive showcase of collections as diverse as the student designers who create them. Providing an up-close look at original designs that are cutting edge in terms of style and technical execution, the event is a launching pad for emerging designers and groundbreaking talent.

The 2019 O’More Fashion Show featured nine senior Fashion Design students as they debuted their capstone collections, ranging from avant-garde to lavish evening gowns and contemporary wear to Asian-inspired streetwear. In addition, the event showcased the Fall/Winter 2019 denim collection inspired by extreme sports and sponsored by Olah, Inc., and Prosperity Textile. Every garment in these collections was conceived, designed, and constructed by the O’More students.

The show included two award-winning alumni to our line-up: Van Hoang, 2018 Nashville Fashion Forward Fund recipient, and Ashley Balding, NFA Honors’ 2017 and 2018 Women’s Wear Designer of the Year. Hoang and Balding represent O’More’s strong corps of talented alumni and are both a testament to the advanced design skills and business acumen gained through our Fashion Degree programs.

In addition to providing design education that allows graduates to compete successfully in the demanding fashion industry, the fashion program believes in the power of design to transform lives. This year, O’More’s Fashion Design students collaborated with GiGi’s Playhouse Down Syndrome Achievement Center to positively impact the lives of adults by creating a custom, fashion-forward garment that our new friends at GiGi’s Playhouse showcased on the runway at the 2019 O’More Fashion Show.

It was an unforgettable evening of beauty, artistry, craftsmanship and care for others––an evening befitting our new Belmont home.
