Carol Wong will be among the first students to graduate from ASU’s new fashion degree program this spring. With help from ASU’s Herberger Arts and Design Entrepreneurship Students, Wong staged ASU’s first entrepreneurship runway show. Almost 500 guests witnessed the creative and innovative work of the fashion students.

In addition to her position as The Jacquie Dorrance Curator of Fashion Design at Phoenix Art Museum, Dennita Sewell also leads the new fashion program in the School of Art at ASU’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. Sewell was in attendance watching her protégés.

The show also included sustainability-inspired designs. Students were asked to create upcycling clothes with denim material from secondhand clothing stores.
