And finally, videos of the Runway 3.0 senior collections, with Missy’s collection at 1:50 and 1:53, and Britt’s collection at 4:18-5:07. The physical collection are shown in the foreground, with the avatar models strutting their stuff on the LED screen behind the catwalk models.
We worked with Brittany Chonka, one of our student interns, over the last two semesters helping her develop her physical and her virtual collections. All of this effort culminated at Runway 3.0, with hercollection shown on both the physical catwalk with her avatar models walking the big screen behind her live models.
After Missy’s demi-collection, which was shown earlier in the event, Britt’s collection closed the group of senior collections with her collection of six pieces. Britt used an array of materials, including lace, leather, taffeta, suede, fur, and fiberoptics. Inspired by the steampunk and neo-Victorian trends, Brittany’s work incorporated special buckles as her closeures and had a decidedly theatrical feel.
Britt’s work is shown here, both on the physical Runway 3.0 catwalk and on the Virtual Runway™ catwalk.
After the swirl of the backstage, it was almost a relief to find our seats and watch the show. FRI student intern Heather Sloma (she did some great work with us this semester which we’ll show very soon) joined us after pitching in to get Missy’s models properly bedazzled.
Missy’s demi-collection of three pieces was shown early in the show, with Britt’s senior collection closing the senior group. We’ll start with Missy’s models, with her Virtual Runway avatar models shown on the large screen behind her live models.
