Behind the Scenes Day is a day-long event that hosts future AMD students, parents, and teachers on campus for a day of activities. For many high school students interested in apparel, this is the day their decision is made to “choose their adventure” at Iowa State University.
This year, students can watch pre recorded videos about Iowa State’s outstanding faculty, different opportunities an AMD student has, and the overall experience at ISU (Visit our Behind the Scenes Day page for videos). Students can also participate in live, interactive sessions on various aspects of the fashion industry throughout the weekend. Finally, Behind The Scenes end each day with a Q&A on successful students or a highlight of some talented designers.
Every year, students have opportunity to showcase student designs in the Iowa State University Fashion Show. It's one of the largest student-produced and promoted events in the nation with Producers, Directors, and Committee Members, totaling around 130 students!
