Models stepped onto the runway and into the future at this year’s Rip the Runway fashion show.
Saturday’s show at Goldstein Auditorium produced by Syracuse University’s African Student Union and the Fashion and Design Society showcased original looks that blended culture, futurism and high fashion.
SU fashion design sophomores Amaya Evans and Jada Williams were the featured student designers while sourced designers included Boubou Queens from Senegal, Deji and Kola from Nigeria, Mimmy Yeboah from Ghana and Angie H. Couture from Liberia.
Comedian Clifford Owusu hosted the fashion show and kept the energy high in the room by joking with audience members and bringing people on stage to show off their outfits and their dance moves.
