ManneqArt is a Non-Profit Organization for Education in the Arts, in which focus is placed on “bringing Wearable Art to the attention of the American public.” During my interview with founder, Lee Anderson, I learned many important details about ManneqArt, its competition, and awards.

[Future Scholars: Keralin, Sdhari, Erin, and Jennifer]

This past Saturday, on February 14th, we hosted a handful of future fashion design students and their families in the design studio.  Future students, Keralin, Sdhari, Jennifer, and Erin, spent the morning learning about the program and engaged in hands-on projects. 

                    

Our Fashion Design Program Coordinator, Ms. Sally Di Marco, gave a brief overview of the program.  Ms. Erika Yuille, the Fashion Design Studio Manager, gave the ladies hands-on demonstrations on the irons, industrial sewing machines, and provided materials so that the students could play with our felting machine.  Professor Leslie Simpson, demonstrated how to use the sergers and then gave the ladies fabric so that they could practice using the machines.  Our Senior Fashion Design Technician, Fara Topolsky, engaged with our future students, as well as their parents, and displayed her stunning Senior Collection.

                             

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we provided each scholar with an FDES Goody Bag, handmade felted hearts, and Valentine’s Day themed snacks.
