Fashion Design & Merchandising News

Date: Mar 2016

On Tuesday, March 29, 2016, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Parrack stopped by the Fashion Design studio to donate several vintage garments that date back to the 1900s! These garments are all in excellent condition and will be valuable pieces to add on to the program's costume collection.

                                                      The Parrack’s donated a four-piece historic wedding tuxedo, which includes 2 vests, a jacket, and pants.  The tuxedo belonged to Mr. Parrack's grandfather, which he wore the day he got married. He lived in Baltimore County all his life, and it is very important to the family that the garments remain in the area.

Our faculty and students would like to thank Mr. Jason Tompkins for the brilliantly illustrated lecture he conducted regarding Fashion Styling on Monday, March 21st.  It was extremely enlightening for the students to learn about his humble beginnings, and the road he traveled to becoming an experienced professional.

Jason’s presentation, coupled with the beautiful visuals of various styling vignettes, was both inspirational and educational.  Students learned how fashion stylists are an important part of a larger creative team; that they collaborate with designers, hair stylists, and many others, to put together a particular look for a specific project.  Much of the information that he expanded upon will be greatly useful for...Learn More

As a fashion student, it can be hard to find exactly what you’re looking for because there are so many places that have information about the fashion industry. Luckily, Stevenson has so many great resources for fashion students.  I met with the Librarian for the School of Design, Sandra Marinaro, and talked about the resources that can be helpful for fashion students. She talked to me about online databases, research websites, and print resources.

 

 

Online Resources

The online resources at Stevenson can be accessed by going to the library’s main website. Different resources, such as WGSN, Women’s Wear Daily Archives, and Vogue Archives will show different articles that relate to fashion. You can also access databases, such as ARTSTOR, to find digital images. The images are high quality and can be used and zoomed in on to see intricate details of any garment. Like Sandra Marinaro said, “it’s not only what you get, but what you can do with what you get.”  Another online resource is Films on Demand, which is an online database that gives students access to films, documentaries, and interviews on different topics. A cool thing about this database is it not only gives access to the film, but also the transcript for the film. I thought this was interesting because you can easily use quotes from a film or interview without missing anything, because you could not hear it accurately.

Print Resources

A variety of print resources, like the World Fashion Encyclopedia and Chanel: The Vocabulary of Style is available in the library. These print resources are found in the GT and TT sections of the reference and archive sections at the Greenspring campus library.

If students need any information about library resources, they can contact Sandra Marinaro at smarinaro@stevenson.edu

The first semester of classes at Stevenson is the first step toward a promising future. It can be a nerve-wracking experience, with many opportunities and many unknowns. Buying supplies for school should not be one of these unknowns. A campus store is located on both the Owings Mills and the Greenspring campuses. 

The Owings Mills Campus sells books for graduate classes and undergraduate online classes. If you take a course online, you will need to shop in this location. The store also sells clothing, novelty items, and personal hygiene supplies (in case of an emergency). The Greenspring Campus sells books for undergraduate classes held on campus. It is located on the first floor of the Manuszak Student Union. 

In order to take the hassle out of buying required texts, books can also be reserved and paid for online at http://store.stevenson.edu. There is a link to the Owings Mills online store at the top of the home page.  After 24 business hours, the items can be picked up in the store. This is especially helpful for your first semester at Stevenson. It is best to look at the books required for each class, but pay close attention to the section numbers for the requirements. Some of the same courses do not require the same textbook. If the books are wrapped  ...Learn More
