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!

Please join us TONIGHT, December 4, for a special opening reception for this exhibition, which will be hosted in the St Paul Companies Pavilion from 6-8 p.m.

Fashion design majors will be exhibiting original fashions they have created inspired by traditional clothing of Brazil, Egypt, England, Greece, India, Morocco, and Spain. 

Students from the Carroll County Career and Technology Center’s textiles and fashion career department assisted with the exhibition by creating displays for the garments.

Junior and senior students from Stevenson University’s Fashion Design program will showcase their exhibition, “We Are One In Fashion,” at New York City’s prestigious Fashion Week in February. The exhibition, a collection of original evening garments inspired by the traditional fashions from countries all across the globe, will be featured on the runway February 19, 2015 in the grand ballroom of the historic Hotel Pennsylvania, located in the heart of the garment industry, 401 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10001.

In collaboration with PLITZS Fashion Marketing, the students will work with professional models, make-up artists, and stylists. They will also be included in the media hour in which they will have the opportunity to meet the press and the fashion buyers.

“The partnership between Stevenson University and PLITZS Fashion Marketing is going to highlight the talents of our students, and provide them with the opportunity to connect with industry leaders,” said Sally DiMarco, Program Coordinator and Associate Professor of Fashion Design.

“It is going to be wonderful to have my design grace the runway at Fashion Week in New York,” said junior Fashion Design major Abigail Austin, whose piece is inspired by ethnic costumes from India. “To work with professionals in the industry is a valuable experience, and I’m excited to share in it with my peers.” ...Learn More
