Department of Interior Design and Fashion Studies to cancel in-person activities for the 16th annual Student Symposium

Wednesday, March 18, 2020

In line with CDC recommendations and Kansas State University guidelines we will have to cancel the in-person aspect of our IDFS Symposium. The events on April 17, including the Fashion Special Topics Sessions, Interior Design Master Classes, and ID Professional Panel will be conducted through teleconferencing and you are invited to participate from your locations.  These activities are open to the public. We would be happy for students and professionals to join the activities from across the country to learn about the fashion industry and interior design profession.

The links below provide access to the opportunity to register to participate free of charge:

Register for FASH Special Topics Sessions 

Register for ID Master Classes

Register for ID Professional Panel

Cancelling the 2020 IDFS Showcase of Excellence and Networking Luncheon are necessary responses to the global pandemic.  For this reason, submissions for the IDFS Showcase of Excellence will not be accepted this year.

If you are a teacher/counselor, parent, 4-H leader please be sure to inform your students of this cancellation and virtual format change. Any student that is interested in learning more about the fashion industry or the interior profession is encouraged to register to participate in the virtual format. Thank you!

For those of you that have already purchased tickets to the IDFS Showcase of Excellence and/or registered for the Networking Luncheon we will be refunding you. Please give us time to work through that process. Thank you!

Please visit https://www.hhs.k-state.edu/idfs/events/symposium/index.html to view schedule of events, updates and information.

We apologize for any challenges caused by this change.
