About Us

The Cornell Fashion Collective, formerly the Cornell Design League, is a student-run organization that provides members of the Cornell community with an outlet to express creativity in fashion and fashion management. Each spring, our organization presents a professional runway show featuring the talent of students who both design apparel and manage the operations of the show. Our organization gives students, both undergraduate and graduate, the opportunity to practice design, demonstrate their talents, and learn how to produce a large-scale fashion event.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to present an engaging and professional runway show, providing a platform for Cornell University students to collaborate, express creativity, and inspire our community.

Note from the Executive Board

The Cornell Fashion Collective Executive Board is excited to present this year’s annual runway show on March 9th, 2019. CFC has grown to have over 125 members representing all 7 of Cornell’s undergraduate colleges. We believe the diversity and talent of our members is one of the core elements of what makes our program so exceptional, and we hope you’ll join us for our 35th show!
