CREO 2024

Friday May 10, 2024 

Each spring, Mount Mary’s fashion department produces a highly-anticipated, student-run fashion show celebrating the collaborative creative efforts of both design and merchandise management majors. 

Students from the Fashion Show Coordination class will ideate and oversee the transformation of our elegant Alumnae Dining Room into a bright and spacious venue for the 2024 show. Original creations by student designers will be featured, with a few extra surprises in store!

CREO: Our annual celebration of the arts

Latin for "to make, create, produce," CREO is an annual celebration from Mount Mary University's School of Arts & Design showcasing student work from fashion, studio art, graphic design, interior design and art therapy that culminates in a student-run fashion show.

CREO is another example of how Mount Mary University lives its mission of being a Creative Campus — a place that recognizes the importance of creativity and nurtures a unique brand of talent that can improvise new ways of thinking.
