New York-based fashion de-

signer, Season 5 "Project Runway" contestant and Kent State University graduate Suede came back into town to introduce his new SUEDEsays line of fabrics and patterns with a free fashion show Feb. 2, in Rockwell Hall Auditorium at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., and a free meet-and-greet at the Hudson Jo-Ann Fabric store the evening before.

Suede, who also recently competed on "Project Runway All Stars" Season 2, unveiled SUEDEsays line with 15 exclusive runway looks. The fashion show, presented in conjunction with Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, Simplicity, The Fashion School at Kent State and Springs Creative, used several current Kent State students.

"In every SUEDEsays design, we offer classic, edgy and flirty looks," Suede said at the Jo-Anns event. "We give the customer to tools to make their own fashion."
