Exactly one week from today on Thursday, February 19th, Stevenson University Fashion Design students, along with three alumni, will be showcasing their designs at Plitz Fashion Marketing during New York Fashion Week!

Everyone is full of excitement and stress! Since students were unable to attend a model call in New York for the fashion show they were each assigned their own model, rather than being responsible for finding their own model. However, each designer was responsible for contacting the model assigned to them to discuss measurements, shoes, and accessories.

Students are working around the clock to complete their garments, coordinate their garments with the size and height of their models, and make travel and hotel arrangements for their stay in New York.

One of our students, Sherese Mclean, posted to her Facebook page, “Like my dress is gonna be in a fashion show during New York fashion week in 8 days. This can’t be real. All I can do is thank God for the amazing opportunity!”

The Plitz Fashion Show during New York’s 2015 Fashion Week will be held at the historic Hotel Pennsylvania, which is located in the heart of the garment district. Tickets for this event will be sold at the door for $20 per person.

Later in the evening, here in Fredrick, Maryland, I will be attending the Whitaker Gallery at Hood College, where the children’s wear from the “We Are One In Fashion” collection will be showcased in a fashion-photography exhibit depicting ideas of Home through fabric, texture, color, style, and environment.

We are also extremely excited about this upcoming event and are in the process of preparing for the installation of the children’s wear from the “We Are One In Fashion” collection.

Hood College is located in Fredrick, Maryland and the opening reception will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., featuring a gallery talk at 6:00 p.m. The exhibit and opening reception are FREE, open to the public, and include free parking in the Chapel Lot.

If you are in either Maryland or New York please feel free to join us for these exciting and highly anticipated events and support Stevenson University’s Fashion Design Program and Students!
