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. These junior fashion design majors will be creating original designs influenced by the traditional garments of foreign countries.  Please join us at the Saint Paul Pavilion on the Greenspring Campus for a reception on Thursday, December 4, 2014 from 6-8 p.m.

We look forward to bringing you the unique fashions of the Draping II class! 

We would like to send a warm welcome to both our new and returning students!  There are many exciting events that fashion design majors will be participating in this semester such as the Lego Challenge, the Student Bridal Exhibition, and the “We Are One in Fashion” exhibit.

The Lego Challenge encourages participation from all First Year Seminar classes to construct their version of Career Architecture out of Lego’s. This event will be held in the Owings Mills Gym on Friday, November 7th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. 

An Opening reception will take place at the Cheri Amour Boutique in Savage Mill, Maryland on Thursday, November 6th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., where the Student Bridal Exhibition will feature repurposed wedding gowns created by the students enrolled in the FDES 417 Fashion Design Internship class. ...Click here to read more.

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!
