Fashion Design News

Stevenson University’s (SU) Fashion Design program in collaboration with the Cherie Amour boutique located in Savage Mill, MD will present, A Bridal Party, a display of one-of-a-kind, repurposed bridal gowns. The junior and senior fashion design majors enrolled in the FDES 417 Fashion Design Internship class taught by Professor Leslie Simpson have created the pieces. The display is open to the public and it kicks off with a reception on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the boutique.

Cherie Amour is a supporting retail boutique of the local non-profit, Success in Style (SIS) http://successinstyle.org/, which was founded by Mrs. Jeannette Kendall in 2002. The company also operates Charity’s Closet, a resale boutique for women and teens, and Phil’s Closet, an upscale resale store for men. According to Jeannette Kendell, “donating a wedding gown is one of the best ways to honor the dress and prevent it from wasting away in a closet for years.”

Under the tutelage of SU’s Fashion Design Studio Manager, Mrs. Erika Yuille, the students deconstructed the wedding gowns and repurposed each piece. These elegant and modern gowns, begging to be worn down the aisle again, will be available for sale in the boutique....Click here to read more.

Courtney Roberts, a former student of Stevenson University, has recently created her first collection of stunningly gorgeous, red carpet worthy dresses.  She was assisted by her former internship supervisor, Manish Singh, who works as a designer and private label manufacturer at Victor Rossi. Mr. Singh stated that he “has known Courtney for a few years and had the pleasure of assisting Courtney with her designs.”  We, in the Fashion Design Department, are extremely proud to see one of our own students mature into such an accomplished fashion designer.

Congratulations Courtney!    

The FDES 303, Fashion Design IV – Draping II class is working with their instructor, Sally Di Marco, to prepare for the, “We Are One in Fashion” exhibition.
