The annual Otis Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show features Los Angeles' largest fashion runway event showcasing designs for women, men and children. Leaders in the fashion, art, design, and entertainment industries 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, 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.
By working with professional designers as mentors, students learn all aspects of the design process; testing new ideas, methods, materials and equipment.
