VIDEO: ‘Great Gatsby’ style dominates at MTSU Fashion Runway Show

The MTSU Department of Human Sciences presented its annual Fashion Runway Show April 11 in the Tennessee Room of the James Union Building.

The inspiration for the couture on display came from the metals, architecture and cars of the Great Depression, when the glamour of fashion was in stark contrast to the condition of the country.

Transportation in the “Great Gatsby” era was the prominent theme, a timely choice coming on the heels of the motion picture remake of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby” winning the 2014 Academy Award for Best Costume Design.

You can watch video from this year’s fashion show below.

The students are working under the direction of Dr. Rick Cottle, an assistant professor in the Department of Human Sciences. For more information, contact Cottle at 615-494-8752 or
