Fashion majors and moguls alike look to New York every February for New York Fashion Week, and fortunately for those unable to ditch class for the airport, the College of Family and Consumer Sciences is bringing fashion week to Athens.

For fashion week, many professionals in the industry, professors and students come together to put on panels, workshops, events and fashion shows. All of the featured events are put together by the University of Georgia and its students.

The Fashion Design Student Association (FDSA) will host its fashion show "ethereal" in the Lamar Dodd first floor atrium at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21. In preparation for the event, the group hosted sewing socials, casting days and a rehearsal evening. See a behind the scenes preview of its upcoming event.
