Headlines and history; colors and textures; intellectual explorations and lived experiences all spark our imagination. Through runway, performance, and narrative, React will explore the ways we, as designers and students, respond to the world around us.

THREADS is an annual celebration showcasing student work from the Textiles and Fashion Design Program in the School of Human Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The show is produced with collaborative participation of students across the UW-Madison campus. Combining music, lights, dance and runway, Threads is an annual event that seeks to engage the Madison community in the excitement and appreciation of contemporary design.

Threads: React Virtual Design and Fashion Runway

This year’s ground-breaking virtual collaboration features creative works by 32 students in the TFD program, original music by students in UW’s 18-19 The Studio cohort, and a Video DJ who mixes video clips, images, and music while performing live and within the protocols of social distancing.
