ManneqART is a local non-profit organization focused on bringing Wearable Art to the attention of the American public. Through a variety of events during the year, this group strives to showcase the best in imaginative hair, make-up, costuming, and digital art. The focal point of the season is a public display of exceptional designs created by both professional and student artists from all over the world. 

This will culminate in an Awards Gala Event, which will take place at the Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center located on the grounds of Howard Community College on Sunday, September 28, 2014 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.   

Stevenson University’s fashion design major, Ms. Deneen Joyce Watson, created a wearable sculpture piece during her internship with Lee Anderson, Inc, which will be featured at the Gala and included in the ManneqART 2014 Calendar. 

Ms. Deneen has been awarded the first Stevenson University Fashion Design Program Award for the winning costume she created for the juried ManneqART competition. The competition is open, internationally, to students studying fashion design. The award will be presented to Deneen on September 28 at the ManneqART Fashion Gala at Howard Community College. The winning design will be featured in the ManneqART 2015 Calendar. ManneqART is an international wearable art competition for hair, make-up, costume, and digital art.

[Fashion Design Studio Manager Ms. Erika Yuille with Program Coordinator, Associate Professor Sally M. Di Marco] 

We would like to congratulate Ms. Erika Yuille for her promotion from Fashion Design Technician to Fashion Design Studio Manager! Her new role will consist of supervising the Fashion Design Technicians as well as a Work-Study student assigned to the program. 

Ms. Yuille will provide assistance to the technicians and work-study student in all of the technical fashion design classes, as well as during the Open Studio periods. Encouraged and trained by both grandmothers, Ms. Yuille, has been transforming raw materials into finished products since she was five years old.

In 2007, she earned her AS in Fashion Design under the instruction of our program coordinator Sally Di Marco, who invited Erika to tutor, and later to teach, basic and advanced sewing, and tailoring as an adjunct upon her graduation. She also provided all the photographs for Ms. DiMarco’s book, “Basic Draping.” We are very excited to work with, and learn from, Ms. Erika in her new role!
