DEBUT Runway Show

Held each spring, the DEBUT Runway Show features designs by graduating students in the Fashion Design and Theatre Costume Design Advanced Study programs, as well as work from Interior Design, Digital Media, and Textile Design students.

Program Director, Mary Stephens, has shepherded the Fashion Design Advanced Study Program and DEBUT from its early beginnings and works closely with the students throughout the year to develop their collections. As many as 60 students apply to the exclusive program each year, but only ten are accepted.

The event attracts nearly 10,000 people over three days and concludes with the DEBUT Runway Show & Gala, a scholarship fundraising event attended by industry notables, FIDM Alumni, and fashion celebrities.

All ticket proceeds will benefit Born This Way Foundation, committed to making a kinder, more compassionate world.

Tickets will be distributed upon check-in at the event.
