Fashion Design & Merchandising News

Date: Aug 2014


[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!

The fashion design program would like to congratulate the following students on their internships this summer. These ladies are working hard and are fulfilling the internship requirements for graduation by working with various fashion related companies around Maryland. The real-world experiences they are adding to their repertoire of skills will not only be helpful in the upcoming semester's course-work, but also when they seek full-time employment in the fashion industry.

The 2014 Fall Draping II class will be participating in the Fashion Design department's 3rd annual gallery exhibition, “We Are One in Fashion.” This exhibition will display original fashions created by the junior fashion design majors for men, women, and children inspired by the traditional clothing worn by different countries and cultures from around the world.

In order to get a head start and better prepare themselves, the students requested to have summer meetings with Program Coordinator and Professor Sally DiMarco and the Studio Manager Erika Yuille. During these summer sessions the students are encouraged to begin designing, draping, and choosing culturally appropriate fabrics.
