Get Tickets to the Art2Wear 2022 Show on April 27, 2022 in Talley Student Union's Stewart Theatre.

Art2WearTM (A2W) is an educational event where students gain experience by coordinating and producing an annual show. Young designers are challenged to imagine, create, and inspire by expressing their point of view through wearable art. This highly anticipated fashion show fuses the talents of several departments in the College of Design and beyond, exposing student designers to the broader field of fashion. A2W attracts approximately 1,000 attendees in addition to encouraging participation by engaging the student body, the Raleigh community, and the broader design industry.

What is A2W?


A2W’s vision is to challenge our audience and designers to question the boundaries and conventional definitions of “fashion.” We seek to explore new fashion ground and create new design pathways by encouraging our students to blend their technical skill with innovative technology.

A2W “Fashion”

A product or sculptural piece that interacts with the body and serves as either a cultural artifact, an artistic expression, a reflector of society, outward illustration of a person’s identity (including but not limited to social class, religion, and ethnicity), starter of revolutions, economic building block, basic human need, or body covering.
