The annual Fashion Show event, currently put on by the Department of Apparel, Events, and Hospitality Management (AESHM), has provided students a chance to show off their designs to an eager audience for 37 years. Over the years, this student-run event has highlighted countless beautiful outfits designed by Iowa State students. Here are some of our favorite outfits from shows of the 1980s!
