Fashion on DUTV
June 9, 2010
We will broadcast this year’s highly anticipated annual fashion show on DUTV this weekend. If you missed the collections from forty senior and graduate Fashion students gracing the runway last Saturday at the glorious Urban Outfitters Corporate Headquarters, you can catch the show with broadcasts Friday, June 11th at 8:00 PM and Saturday and Sunday at 6 PM. DUTV is carried on Comcast and Fios in our region. If you’re a Comcast subscriber you can find DUTV on channel 54 and for Fios subscribers DUTV is channel 37. Students and faculty from our Cinema & Television department captured and edited the show for broadcast under the direction of DUTV general manager Dave Culver.
The shows were staged by students from the Design & Merchandising Program and featured evening, women’s, men’s, sport, swim and children’s lines as well as lingerie, designed by Fashion Design students and modeled by Philadelphia’s top professional models. This year, students found inspiration in everything from vintage carnival settings to World War II aviation to dinosaur bones. Students won awards from premier professional designers and retailers including Carole Hochman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Lilly Pulitzer, Destination Maternity and Joan Shepp. Both Lilly Pulitzer and Carole Hochman donated fabric for students to use in their creations. A new accessory/jewelry award was presented thanks to the generosity of noted designer John Wind.
Among those students showcased were award-winning Milka Osoro and Ashley Pahler. Milka won the grand prize at the international Arts of Fashion competition that was held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art this past October and was hosted by Drexel. Milka will soon be heading off to Paris for a year’s internship at the coveted Les Ecoles de la Chambre Syndicale de la Mode. Ashley was the first student to win the Charles Evans Scholarship, part of a $1 million donation to the Fashion program from the Charles Evans Foundation.
