Tyrin Morris is an inspiration for many. Morris has a very creative mindset and is constantly posting his makeup looks on his makeup Instagram, @glamboyt.

Morris held a fashion show, called The Fierce Forest, as his senior project on Friday, Jan 25. The fashion show was held in the auditorium and packed with supporters. He had many different looks at his fashion show and had many students participate in modeling his looks. His theme was inspired by his friends’ personalities.

“I wanted to use animal totems, and I wanted to choose looks that went with my model’s personalities,” Morris said.

Morris has always loved fashion and makeup. He hosted a fashion show for his senior project because he wanted to show that he has good event organization skills. He also wanted to raise the bar for non-traditional senior projects. Morris came up with a plethora of different styles and outfits for his show; although he did have a favorite.

“Definitely Julia Dambeck’s, the closer’s, dress,” Morris said.

The outfits were inspired from Morris’ personal collection. A lot of the pieces were from Mad Lion Gallery. Morris put some of the the outfits together himself.

Morris’ inspiration for the fashion show was a brand called Iris Van Herpen.

“I love the way that she redefined couture and broke boundaries,” Morris said.
