A reception and silent auction will begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by the fashion show at 7 p.m.

TechStyle was created by the Department of Design to show off its students in style. The work of 29 apparel design and manufacturing students and 34 interior design students will be recognized at the event. 

 Cherif Amor, interim chair for the Department of Design, said TechStyle is a celebration of design excellence where senior students from the apparel design and manufacturing and interior design disciplines reveal their original and unique designs to the Lubbock community.

"The Fashion Show and Interior Design Portfolio Displays constitute the culmination of senior student design compositions and productions - a celebration not to miss," Amor said.

Tickets for the event are $10 and can be purchased at the door or in the Department of Design Office, located in Human Sciences Room 211.

The Department of Design encompasses the fields of apparel design, interior design and environmental design and strives to contribute to new knowledge in these areas through design education, research and community outreach.
