This year’s Annual Benefit Fashion Show presents an opportunity for viewers and participants to discuss the elements of evolution, an endless process in the developmental growth and adaptation over time, continuing through natural order. Time Lapse also allows student artists and designers to expand on ideas and events of the past, discover how they reoccur in the present, and predict patterns of the future. It is a chance to re-interpret historical themes and evolving fashion.
Proceeds from the 22nd Annual Benefit Fashion Show help support students involved in diversity programming and scholarly pursuits through the Office of Diversity and Intercultural Development, which sponsors the show. The event is one of many ways MICA continues to provide comprehensive diversity programming that supports the students’ academic and social needs.

Photography promoting the Annual Benefit Fashion Show was meant to draw upon the unique skills of alumnus Derek Blanks ’00 (Illustration BFA) to depict futuristic energy. “We wanted the photography to be fun, show a lot of movement, and have a futuristic feel," said the show’s assistant director Natovian McLeod ’15, ’16 (General Fine Arts BFA, Teaching MA). "The show is about growth, adaptation, and evolution, and we thought that the long exposures and gels would help show that energy.”
