Dominican Students Excel at FIT

Every Spring the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), showcases the best work of FIT’s graduating bachelor of art fashion design students in a professional runway show dubbed, The Future of Fashion.

Students that receive the FIT Critic Award, have their works showcased down the runway, in front of a group of judges composed of fashion-media professionals.

This year, the event is set for Thursday, May 1, 2014.
