23 Feb O’More College of Design: Fashion Show Reveal
This past Friday, O’More hosted a beautiful and glamorous VIP reveal party to discuss the 2017 Fashion Show in May.
Guests mingled, indulged in hors d’oeuvres, and admired both student and alumnae work around the space. As the night progressed, fashion chair, Jamie Atlas announced a plethora of surprises and collaborations regarding the show; from a wonderful partnership with GiGi’s Playhouse to the sponsorship of Eastman. Both of these allow a select few of chosen students to grow and challenge themselves as designers.
In regards to Gigi’s Playhouse, 11 of O’More’s juniors will be paired with a child, get to know and love them, and finally create an outfit specifically for them based on their needs. We’ll get to see these wonderful children strut their stuff on the runway too!
For the Eastman Innovation Lab sponsorship, 11 fashion design students are creating garments from their own inspiration with a new cellulose fiber called Naia to be displayed at the fashion show as well. This journey will be documented along the way, so stay tuned for the fun videos to come!
Along with current students, this year’s show will also feature four strong women who happen to be alumnae, and just killing it out there in the industry: Jamie and the Jones, Ona Rex, and Owlette.
Fashion faculty member, Kevin Crouch, has created one piece and is in the process of creating two more pieces to be on display in the fashion show as well, to display the importance of couture techniques in today’s world.
Catch us on May 12th for a fashion show unlike any other O’More has held before; after all, the VIP event is taking place on O’More’s campus for the first time in history! See you then.
