‘Color the Runway‘ returns for a fifth year at Middle Tennessee State University. Beginning in 2017, “Color the Runway” is meant to showcase Black culture, fashion, and music. It is held yearly during Black History Month, and features MTSU students from all over campus. This years theme was black and animal print, appropriately titled “Welcome to the Jungle.”

The fashion show, which took place on Feb. 11 in the Student Union ballroom, was live streamed and posted to YouTube.

A special thanks to Color of the Runway Business Director, Deven Salazar for help with identification of the models in the photos.
