The Cornell Fashion Collective is a student-run organization that provides members of the Cornell community with an outlet to express creativity in fashion and fashion management. Each spring, our organization presents a professional runway show featuring the talent of students who both design apparel and manage the operations of the show. Our organization gives students, both undergraduate and graduate, the opportunity to practice design, demonstrate their talents, and learn how to produce a large-scale fashion event.
Our mission is to present an engaging and professional runway show, providing a platform for students to collaborate, express creativity, and inspire our community.
WHAT CFC MEANS TO OUR MEMBERS
"CFC has given me a space to learn and grow in a way I could have never imagined. Managing over 150 members, 200 models, and nearly 3000 show attendees seemed like a daunting task at first, but I cannot express enough gratitude and love for this experience and organization. I've been able to interact with so many amazing members of the Cornell and Ithaca community and have gained a deeper appreciation for these incredibly talented designers and for fashion as a whole. The experiences I've had throughout my involvement with CFC will last a lifetime, and I cannot wait to see the culmination of all our hard work this March!"
- Devin Schneider, President
"Being a senior in CFC is bittersweet. It has been an incredible club for me to showcase my leadership skills, explore my creativity, and also learn about business operations. Having been secretary and a designer my sophomore year, I feel CFC has allowed me to explore my full potential."
- Ruth Beinhacker, Business Operations Team
"The time I've spent in CFC has allowed me to have an outlet to share my designs, and the opportunity to connect with other like-minded individuals. This club brings together a diverse community of creatives that has helped me to view fashion from many different perspectives and grow as both a designer and an artist."
