The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and Houston Community College team up for a professional fashion show inspired by Sculpted in Steel: Art Deco Automobiles and Motorcycles, 1929–1940. “Fashion Fusion” features garments created by young designers in HCC's award-winning fashion program.

The runway fashion show is the culmination of a competition that challenged students to design original garments as edgy, creative responses to the fabulous Art Deco curves and luxurious attention to detail exemplified by the vehicles on view in Sculpted in Steel. This free event  presents 20 selected garments, with awards for the top winners in four categories.

Complete your evening with a visit to the ticketed exhibition Sculpted in Steel before or after the fashion show, and enjoy cocktails at the Fashion Week–themed Happy Hour Thursday from 6 to 9 pm.
