We are excited to congratulate the next two graduates of Stevenson University’s School of Design Fashion Design Program, Caitlin Szilvassy and Sherie Jones! On Monday, December 15 of this year, these two talented ladies made up the second group of students to receive their Bachelor degrees in Fashion Design with a Minor in Art.

 Along with former graduate, Ruthie Edwards, Sherie worked as a Fashion Show Producer for Stevenson University’s Fashion Design Program’s first three fashion shows.  She also worked with Michele Blanchard and is currently looking for a job in the fashion industry.

 During the summer in 2013, Caitlin interned with fashion designer, Anna Sui, in New York.  This past summer she completed the Business Management Training Program at Nordstrom’s and will be returning to Nordstrom’s in January to continue working in the Men’s Furnishing Department.

 Congratulations ladies and good luck with your future fashion endeavors!

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!    

Congratulations to senior fashion design student, Ms. Victoria Clark, as she begins her new position this academic year as a Work-Study student in the Fashion Design program. Victoria will be working with our dynamic professional staff led by Fashion Design Studio Manager, Mrs. Erika M Yuille, and supported by Fashion Design Technicians Ms. Fara Topolsky and Ms. Leah Aronhime.

Best wishes, Victoria and welcome to our team!

We are excited to congratulate the first graduates of Stevenson University’s School of Design Fashion Design Program! On May 9 of this year, the first group of students received their Bachelor degrees in Fashion Design: Kaelin Clements, Ruthie Edwards, Shayna Hardesty, Nicole Myrick, and I (Fara Topolsky).

Since graduating, Shayna has begun working for Zita Apparel in Los Angeles, a new private label manufacturer. As a result of the skill set she was introduced to and worked hard to improve upon here at Stevenson, she is able to perform many tasks for the company. Shayna performs tasks such as sketching on the computer, creating tech packs, researching trends, creating designs, and communicating with their manufacturers in Asia.

Additionally, my experience and in-depth familiarity with the program has led me to be transition from student to technician, and I will be teaching next semester in the Fashion Design Program.
