MIDLAND, MI – Northwood University students posed as mannequins in Midland’s downtown store windows on Thursday, October 11. This was the 35th year that students in Northwood’s Fashion Marketing & Management program have participated in the event cosponsored by the Midland Downtown Development Authority. Spectators enjoyed the many decorated windows in spite of the threatening rain.

While the fashion students chose the theme, “The Style of Life… Come Play the Game of Fashion,” the way each group interpreted it left for a wide range of imagination. The windows were graded and judged in categories. The winners are below:
