Welcome to the 2021 fashion production association design show! We are so grateful that we were able to showcase the wonderful talent in our organization through the creation of this digital look book. fpa has a special place in our hearts, as this is where we found our true selves at the Ohio state university. fpa started 29 years ago, all thanks to dr. nancy ann rudd, with a much smaller group than we have today, which has come to about 70 members. our college experience would not have been what it was had it not been for fpa, and we are incredibly grateful. please enjoy all of the hard work our brilliant members have completed this year! thank you to anyone and everyone that was involved - enjoy the show!

A Note From Our Advisors
We are so proud of you and so indebted to you, the students in the Fashion Production Association at The Ohio State University, for your creativity, determination, and countless hours of work put forth in bringing this year’s show together. The Fashion Production Association is a student organization that works together with a practicum course to produce an annual show that highlights original student fashion designs, usually on a runway but this year in a “Look Book” online format due to the Covid pandemic. In this 29th year of our show, we are so grateful to the student designers who imagined, sketched, and created their original fashion designs and planned exciting ways to feature them on models. We are also grateful to all of the production team members who planned and carried out all of the other aspects of production including planning the lookbook, fundraising, marketing, service learning for our charity, music, video filming and still photography.
The leadership team of our co-presidents, Grace Nanni and Sarah Parker, and all of the members of our executive team provided us with strong guidance and support to get the production completed within all the university restrictions and issues living with the pandemic. Words cannot express how diligently and creatively they fulfilled their responsibilities. We, your advisors, are truly amazed and overwhelmed to witness your dedication and leadership. It was a true honor to work with you this year and to celebrate your achievements. We are so proud of you all!

This year animation club was directly involved with marketing meetings and collaborating with us to create and animation that portrayed this year's theme, performance. This allowed for new virtual club connections and marketing for our look book! The Animation Club discusses and studies animation techniques by watching films and shorts and practices skills in art and storytelling by doing activities and other projects. This collaboration with FPA was the first production they have worked on, but are planning to include larger projects like this in the future.
