Featuring St. Kate's students and alumnae
Mall of America Rotunda, 1st floor, east side
Cost: Free and open to the public
What do you get when you bring together two mayors, one of Minnesota's “top docs,” an interior designer and other women leaders? A fashion show done St. Kate's style, of course!
Several prominent St. Catherine University alumnae have been paired with current St. Kate's Fashion Merchandising students. The fashion challenge? The students are tasked with styling the alumnae with looks from Ann Taylor's new spring line.
Alumnae models include: Annie Ballantine '05, interior designer and owner of Annie Ballantine designs; Cathy Bendel '81, MD, associate professor of pediatrics and director of the neonatal-perinatal medicine fellowship program at the U of M; Cathy Brennan '70, occupational therapy consultant; Elizabeth Kautz '82, mayor of Burnsville; Molly Park '71, mayor of Sunfish Lake; Sahasha Reese '12, office coordinator for St. Catherine University Alumnae Relations; Asma Lori Saroya '07, executive director of CAIR- MN; and TashaRose Terry '08, graduate student clerk for the US Attorney's Office.
Event emcee: Linda Thrasher '88, chair of the Alumnae Council and St. Catherine University trustee; corporate practice leader, Himle, Rapp & Company.
Special Music Guest
Local music artist Toussaint Morrison will perform a few numbers, including a spoken word piece about coming from a family of Katies.
The event also features an encore performance of 'up cycled' looks by Apparel Design students from the Katwalk: Annual Fashion Show. Think Project Runway’s alternative material challenge, with an intentionally sustainable focus. The designs reflect a curriculum paradigm developed by St. Kate’s Apparel, Merchandising, and Design faculty that prepares future professionals to balance economic, environmental and societal considerations.
Wear your Katie gear with pride and help create a sea of purple at the Mall!
