Portfolio In Motion

Portfolio in Motion is Marymount University's premier fashion event for students in the Fashion Design and Fashion Merchandising programs.

Each year the show features inspired creations designed by Marymount fashion design students and alumni. And students in Marymount’s fashion merchandising program produce a show that transports viewers to a world beyond their own.


Combining Academics and Student Creativity

Portfolio in Motion is the culminating academic project for Marymount Fashion students. Every aspect, from the jury-selected student designs and models to the show's production, reflects their academic and creative efforts.
