About Us

The Kent State Fashion Collective is a student-faculty organization on campus working to identify issues impacting fashion school members and finding student driven solutions. We hope to enhance the fashion school experience and build student connections within the community and beyond in a collaborative forum. We wish to create a space where both merchandising and design students can work together on creative initiatives, widening perspectives and networking with other artists. Our organization works to highlight a diverse view of student body work and find new ways to become more knowledgeable about the fashion industry.
