We're excited to share a unique series of live in-store experiences produced in collaboration with our good friends at Gordmans.

The Unfringed Fashion Show is a student curated, retail fashion event designed to debut seasonal product lines and connect Gordmans retail stores with local millennial audiences. The series gives fashion design students an exclusive opportunity to learn from the pros and showcase their talents within an extraordinary live retail experience.

The Unfringed Fashion Show serves as the final project for the participants. Students gained first-hand experience by working directly with Gordmans' marketing and social media departments, along with members of Department Zero, to learn about fashion marketing, event sponsorship and production. 

“Working with Gordmans on the Unfringed Fashion Show has been a wonderful opportunity for our students. Not only did they gain valuable industry experience working with one of the leading retailers, but they also had the opportunity to see how the skills they are learning in the classroom translate to the real world,” said Amy Martin, Interim President of The Art Institutes International – Kansas City.” I am very proud of what our students have accomplished and look forward to seeing the finished product on Saturday.”

The Gordmans’ Director of Marketing Strategy, Jeff Bell, said, “Gordmans is thrilled to be working with the students and faculty of Art Institutes International Kansas City.  The opportunity to engage with our guests throughout the local community in such an experiential and fun way has been exciting!”
