BFA & MFA Exhibition & Fashion Show The annual BFA & MFA exhibition of VCUQatar’s graduating artists and designers opened with a reception on May 3, 2015. The exhibition continues to be an important event for our graduating students as it provides an opportunity to bring together students across all disciplines and showcase their creative talents. The exhibition invited visitors to discover the departmental exhibition zones for the BFA exhibition, while the MFA exhibition was held in the VCUQatar Gallery. For most students, this is the first time they have formally exhibited, providing an opportunity for family, friends and the general public to see their work, as well as a chance for industry representatives to see the work of emerging talent in Qatar. VCUQatar’s sixteenth annual fashion show, “Thread,” was hosted by Salam at The Gate Mall from the April 14–16, 2015. The fashion show showcased the work of eight graduating seniors whose thesis collections consisted of an eclectic mix of day-to-evening looks that reinforced the individual vision, creativity and styles of the young designers. “Thread” also featured the work of our sophomore and junior students, three student guest designers from the Richmond VCU campus and guest designer Stephane Rolland who showcased several of his couture gowns on the runway.
