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.

CREO 2021: Disconnect Reconnect

The Student Designer Fashion Show will be reimagined and presented in a virtual format for 2021. Merchandise management students will capture fashion collections by producing a unique video to feature designs by both 2020 and 2021 fashion design majors. Follow @MountMaryFashion on Instagram for show details and to support the ongoing creative work of our students.
