Starting in 2015, apparel merchandising students have had a chance to compete for the $1,000 Lora and Russ Talbot ISU Fashion Show Merchandising Scholarship. The project is designed by a local or national apparel company with the intent of solving a specific merchandising concern within the firm. We are excited to announce that we will be partnering with Versona of Des Moines to develop this case study! The winner of the scholarship will be announced during the awards portion of The Fashion Show 2018.
