Miami Dade College Fashion Students to Showcase Original Designs at Graduate Show June 6

Miami, June 2, 2023 – Miami Dade College’s (MDC) acclaimed Miami Fashion Institute (MFI), in collaboration with Miami Fashion Week, will hold its annual Graduate Show at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 6, at The Elser Hotel in downtown Miami. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit MFI scholarships. Working media is welcome.

This year’s show, themed “Future in Memories,” will showcase original designs by MDC students in the fashion program. Fifteen graduates who earned an Associate in Science in Fashion Design were selected by a jury of industry professionals to unveil their creations on the runway. Designs will be worn by professional models.

“This year’s group of designers really worked to create collections that not only expressed themselves, but also their future design identities. I’m excited about the future of design coming out of Florida. There is so much variety,” said Asanyah Davidson, MFI chair.

MDC’s Miami Fashion Institute offers the region’s only two-year program at a public institution, offering associate degrees in fashion design and fashion merchandising. The program is industry-driven and prepares students to work as creative professionals in the world of fashion, emphasizing design, technology, retail and merchandising. Students also have the opportunity to go on to top four-year programs both domestically and internationally. From concept to production, students learn the process, skills and language of fashion design and technology. They also gain hands-on experience by participating in various events, including Miami Fashion Week. To learn more about MFI, visit
