Billowy capes, structured jackets, sophisticated evening gowns – and even avant-garde bodysuits that take the shape of rhombuses – were some of the fantastical fashions modeled at Collection 2013. The annual runway show was held this Saturday at the Rhode Island Convention Center.

The popular show gives the public a taste of the trendsetting looks crafted by students in the Apparel Design department. In the moments leading up to the start of the show, Maybelline make-up artists were busy primping models as the designers made last-minute adjustments to their garments.

Tommy Hilfiger enjoyed the show from a front row seat. The founder of Tommy USA was one of the guest critics who gave students feedback on their work throughout the year.
