For the first time in years, the Moore College of Art & Design's annual year-end student fashion show is headed to a chic new venue. Thanks to sponsor Century 21 Department Store, the school's design work will be shown at The Barnes Foundation's Annenberg Court Saturday, May 16.

Amedeo Modigliani’s "Redheaded Girl in Evening Dress (Jeune fille rousse en robe de soir)," a painting held in the Barnes' collection, serves as the muse for this year's eveningwear. The show will also include childrenswear, menswear, swimsuits and collections.

The show sells out each year, so those who want to check out the next generation of fashion designers should purchase tickets now. Any remaining tickets will be available at the door. Seating is first come, first served for $30 ticket holders.
