Madison County 4-Hers attended Ohio State University’s Fashion Production Association’s fashion show.

Fashion inspiration

On April 13, Madison County 4-H members who are taking a sewing project this year, traveled to The Ohio State University (OSU) to see a fashion show.

The University’s Fashion Production Association hosted their annual fashion show with a theme of “Next.” The participating OSU students had to design and construct garments hey thought would represent future fashion trends.

Our members who attended were very inspired by the creativity and are hoping to make this show an annual tradition.
