Lilly Pulitzer Student Fashions
February 2, 2010 —
Fashion design students were hard at work creating women’s wear for a fundraiser event at the Lilly Pulitzer store in Ardmore. Last fall, the company donated fabric to our fashion program and challenged our students to create designs in keeping with the Pulitzer style. Under the leadership of department head Roberta Gruber, fashion professors Renee Weiss Chase and Lisa Hayes and Pulitzer’s head designer, Jane Schoenboren, students underwent rigorous critiques as part of the process of refining their clothing creations. Our students’ garments were the centerpiece of a fashion show and cocktail reception at the Ardmore store (49 Saint James Place, Ardmore) on Wednesday, February 10th.
Ten-percent of the proceeds from floor sales during the evening supported the fashion program’s scholarship fund. Awards were given to the evening’s top designers, including one for best dress.
