Fashion Show

 

The Otis Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show features Los Angeles' largest fashion runway show with more than 70 professional models showcasing over 175 fashion designs for women, men and children.  Approximately 800 guests—a creative crowd of leaders in fashion and entertainment—get a glimpse of the future of fashion design from those who invent it—Otis fashion students!   

Featuring the work of the Junior and Senior class, this annual fashion show represents the first milestone for Juniors and the culminating expression of a broad fashion design education for Seniors.  The fashion show demonstrates mastery of skills and knowledge in fashion design created within industry seasonal schedules and standards, aptly preparing students for future success as professionals in the industry.  

The fashion show also serves as a black-tie scholarship benefit event and raises approximately $1 million each year for Otis student scholarships.  Many of these promising young artists and designers (80% of whom require financial aid) would be unable to complete their education without this support.

The Otis Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show is preceded by the Juried Exhibition, which presents student work in the final stages to a selective audience of industry professionals, press, and alumni.  Feedback from the exhibition determines which garments are selected for the show.
