The show will feature student-created casual, evening, children's and experimental wear fashions.

Campbell and Jean Parsons, to create the inauguration gown worn by Iowa's First Lady, Christie Vilsack.
This year, the fashion show will have entertainment throughout the production. The Iowa State Modsquad will perform along with a poetry reading. Music for the show will be provided by area DJs Christopher Hyde and John Solarz.
"Instinct, intuition, interpretation comprise the evolutionary process of designing a garment. Instinct is knowing what you like and what you would wear. Intuition is knowing what others like and would like to wear. Interpretation is how the audience/customer views and interprets your design. All Eyes is just a play on the 3 Is that make up the theme. It also means our show is the center of attention and so are the designs. All eyes are on us," said fashion show's student co-producers, Sarah Schlenger and Ashley Drahn.
