CANCELED: Fashion Your Future Jury of Selection Lecture Series


The annual Jury of Selection is fast approaching on Fri, March 13th, 2020. Jury of Selection is a process whereby a panel of fashion industry professionals review the designs completed by Stephens student fashion designers during the school year.
