The University of Texas Fashion Group is headed to the Big Apple to get the fashion experience of a lifetime. 24 fashion-minded students will be taking on some big responsibilities while inside the tents at Lincoln Center for the showing of the Spring/Summer 2013 Collections. 

The group will be dressing models for the Lela Rose and Timo Weiland shows on Sunday, Sept. 9 and participating in the front of house duties for the Project Runway finale show to be filmed on Friday.

While all that comes with attending Fashion Week may sound “glam," the group will be hard at work making sure all the models are buttoned and zipped and that shoes are strapped on to head down the catwalk.  

The front of house duties for the Project Runway show include putting out any gift bags and information on each seat prior to the show, guiding guests to their seats and cleaning up after the show. And there won’t be much time for beauty rest — one call time for the group is to arrive at the venue at 5 a.m. for an 11 a.m. show!

The students will return to Austin on Monday and with some great fashion stories and some new industry experience.
