Stevenson University’s Fashion Design program will present its fourth annual Student Fashion Show, “A Common Thread,” Saturday, May 9, at 7 p.m. in the Inscape Theater located on the Greenspring campus, 1525 Greenspring Valley Road, Stevenson, MD 21153.

The student-produced event features original clothing designs for men, women, and children. A special segment of the show will introduce the audience to the “We Are One In Fashion” collection created by the junior fashion design students. The garments were inspired by the traditional fashions from countries all across the globe. In partnership with the Plitzs Fashion Marketing Company, select pieces from this collection, along with the work of seniors and alumni, traveled to New York City and were featured on the runway at the historic Hotel Pennsylvania during the city’s prestigious Fashion Week.

In celebration of the program’s second graduating class, the senior students will be showcasing their individual collections. Each original garment has been crafted and meticulously constructed using both hand and machine methods. This year’s production—led by seniors Nakia BoomerMary Katherine Ellsworth, and Jocelyn Williams—features a broad and diverse mix of clothing reflecting whimsical children’s wear, costume inspired looks, bridal designs, and a variety of marketable styles for women.

“Designing a fashion collection is a labor-intensive, but rewarding process. I am impressed by the passion the students lavished on each of their unique collections,” said Sally Di Marco, Program Coordinator and Associate Professor of the Fashion Design program. “The garments are not only innovative but also wearable. Their impeccable work ethic should take them far in their careers.”
