CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The UNI Textile and Apparel Association will hold its 19th annual fashion show titled, "UNI Catwalk," at 7 p.m., Saturday, April 9, in Lang Hall Auditorium on the University of Northern Iowa campus. During the show, donations will be taken for Oxfam America, an international relief and development organization that creates solutions to poverty, hunger and injustice.

The theme for this year's show is "Mixtape" and will feature five sections of designs inspired by music: hip-hop, rock 'n' roll, classical, indie and pop. The sixth section will be a tribute to British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, featuring designs inspired by her.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow in Lang Hall. For more information, contact Annette Lynch, professor in the School of Applied Human Sciences, at 319-273-3054 or annette.lynch@uni.edu.
