GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Greatest Homecoming on Earth kicks off!

Fashion Merchandising and Design students and alum gave a preview to their work that will be shown tonight at the 2023 Aggie Print Homecoming Fashion Show hosted by the Council of Presidents at the University. 

This year’s fashion show’s theme is ‘Elements of the Earth’ and each of the students participating were given fire, water, or air.

The student’s had to design collections that represented their elements. 

We caught up with fashion students Mya Harris, Yakira Chapman, Robert Hudson, and Marcus Battle.

Harris launched new clothing pieces for her brand, R.A.T. by Mya Nicole this past fall. For this year’s Homecoming Fashion Show, Mya was given the element earth so she chose gravel to design her line by.
