Nancy Munson, wife of RIT President David C. Munson Jr., modeled jewelry on the runway during the 8th Annual Fashion Week of Rochester on Oct. 12. She was wearing a piece designed by Leonard Urso, the Ann Mowris Mulligan Distinguished Professor in the School for American Crafts (SAC) within RIT’s College of Imaging Arts and Sciences. In addition to Nancy Munson, 20 SAC students modeled self-designed jewelry during RIT’s portion of the runway show, featuring the theme “jewelry in motion.” It marked the university’s most significant presence in the several years that the metals and jewelry design program has been involved In Fashion Week, which is The Center for Youth’s largest annual fundraiser. Nearly $700,000 was raised for the organization’s homeless youth shelters and crisis services.
