Didn’t make it to New York Fashion Week? No matter: MassArt offers a front-row seat for checking out tomorrow’s sartorial trailblazers. The annual MassArt Fashion Show highlights designs by students from one of the country’s oldest fashion programs, like the eco-minded Melissa Tilley, whose work is pictured here; other participants have gone on to work for the likes of Calvin Klein, Diane von Furstenberg and Marc Jacobs. This year, attendees are invited to both a pre-show party and an after-party, where they can sip cocktails and get an up-close look at some of the designs. Event proceeds will benefit a full scholarship for a deserving fashion student, so catwalk—don’t run—to the big show on May 14.
MassArt’s 2016 Fashion Show’s pre-party starts at 6 pm on May 14 at Cinquecento, 500 Harrison Ave., Boston, and the fashion show starts at 8 pm at the Power Station, 540 Harrison Ave., Boston. $40; $75, show and parties. massart.edu
