Officials say the show features original student designs, including wraps for cancer patients.

Rowan College at Burlington County fashion design students will showcase their talent and original creations on the runway in the 2018 Fashion Show on Friday, May 11, at 6 p.m. at RCBC’s Mt. Laurel Campus’ Votta Hall Auditorium.
