Marymount University’s annual Portfolio in Motion fashion show is one of our favorite celebrations of creativity in Washington education. Last weekend, a mix of hard-working students and graduates (this was the first year alumni were allowed to participate) from the Northern Virginia school’s fashion design and merchandising programs rounded off the end of their academic year by parading a beautiful mix of evening gowns, printed cruisewear, and standout separates down a gilded-leaf-covered runway. The lines were a culmination of several months of hard work and, for graduating seniors, the culmination of their time at Marymount. We rounded up some of our favorite looks from the event in this slideshow—prepare to be very, very impressed.
