Memphis College of Art was a fitting atmosphere for Saturday night’s Memphis Fashion Week runway show featuring designs filled with artful crafting and detailing from the city’s emerging designers. Collections from sixteen Emerging Memphis Designer Project (EMDP) participants, with many debuting their work on the runway for the first time, were met with warm applause and supportive cheer from the audience. Two winners were chosen that night by judges Augusta Campbell and Andra Eggleston along with votes from the audience. Congratulations to Zoe Vu and Mary Ambrose, this year’s winners in the singles and mini collection categories respectively.

Concluding the night was the newest spring/summer collection by former EMDP designer and winner Tara Skelley of Dilettante Collection. Continuing her love for travel, the “Del Sol” collection draws inspiration from Central America elevating familiar native patterns and symbols tassel and sugar skull, all designed with absolute vibrancy.
