Ethan Hoskins and Glory Lee (BRDD 2024) in RISD’s Annual Runway Show

Each year, seniors majoring in Apparel Design present a collection in the department's high-profile runway event. Ethan Hoskins (BRDD 2024, Apparel Design, Psychology) and Glory Lee (BRDD 2024, Apparel Design, Business Economics) are among this year's designers.

Inspired in part by her experiences working in fashion marketing during her time as a student, Lee debuted a collection titled What Suits Me, which "explores and maintains a delicate balance between structure and freedom, youth and maturity, conformity and originality." Hoskins, on the other hand, "discovered in the course of his apparel design studies that he wanted to pursue painting." Vogue Runway's coverage of the show calls his "abstract expressionist self-portraits, executed on Styrofoam ... a reminder of the importance of following one’s heart."
