No White Design Competition & Fashion Show

On April 25, the Weisman Art Museum’s student group, WAM Collective, in conjunction with Northrop Concerts and Lectures will present No White, a design competition in response to the Ballet Preljocaj’s production of Snow White.

Between “once upon a time” and “happily ever after” fairy tales depict a world where dreams really do come true. Fairy tales entered popular culture as a way to teach practical lessons, provide moral instruction, and warn against the consequences of doing wrong. Over time, social and political messages were softened and the stories were changed to enhance their entertainment value.

Forget happily ever after. No White will showcase the work of sixteen University of Minnesota student designers who focus on the villainy, murder, passion and deception that underpin our most beloved fairy tales. Hair and makeup provided by Juut Salonspa.

The runway show starts at 7:30 p.m., but members are invited to mingle with the designers and judges at the pre-show party at while sipping from the Poisoned Cup, WAM’s signature cocktail of the evening.

6:00 p.m. – Pre-show party for members
