Runway 3.0

The Pierce Arrow administrative offices, located on Elmwood Ave., used to be the site where the late Rick James would use the walls for target practice (as rumor has it, at least). Now it will be home to a fashion show. Runway 3.0’s Technology: Progression/Obsession will be held there on Saturday (May 1). The show will feature Buffalo State Colllege students, alumni, and professional designers. The show is under the direction of Erin Habes of the Buffalo State Fashion Technology Program. DJ duo Shock & Awe will provide music for the event. A light show and a 50-foot runway will also be featured. The Nancy Belfer award in the amount of $1,000 will be presented for the senior collection, as well as a $500 prize sponsored by Elaine Polvinen, technology professor, for the art-to-wear design student category of the show. There will be two shows, at 4 and 9pm. Tickets for the earlier show are $10 for general admission and $7 for students. Tickets are $20 for general admission or $100 for V.I.P. tickets. Both ticket prices include a post-show reception; V.I.P. tickets include a pre-show reception as well. All proceeds will benefit the Fashion Students of Buffalo State College Scholarship Foundation.
