Sneak peek at International Academy of Design and Technology fashion show



It's always cool when we see new artistic talent emerging right around us. We're always waiting with bated breath for our next Ben Chmura or Ivanka Ska. Good thing Tampa Bay has a bursting community of student fashion designers learning their trade at places like the International Academy of Design and Technology and the Art Institute of Tampa.

IADT hosts an annual fashion show, which this year turns 25. The show, dubbed "Imagine" and emceed by Miss Tampa 2011 Jessie Pelletier, is at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Coliseum, 535 4th Ave. N., St. Petersburg. It will showcase 250 designs from student and alumni designers. Before the runway show, check out a free design expo featuring multimedia presentations from students in audio production, interior design, advertising design, graphic design and digital media programs.

General admission tickets are $25. VIP tickets are already sold out! Get more information here.

IADT sent the Deal Divas some photos from their fittings last week, so enjoy the sneak peek. As you can see, they're scrambling to put finishing touches on everything. Exciting!
