Biggest Fashion Show Ever

May 28, 2010 — The always highly anticipated annual fashion show will be bigger than ever this year. Collections from forty senior and graduate Fashion students will grace the runway on Saturday, June 5th at the glorious Urban Outfitters Corporate Headquarters. The two spectacular shows, at 4 PM and 8 PM, are staged by students from the Design & Merchandising Program and will feature 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. These one of a kind designs will play to a sold-out crowd of more than 1,500 people.  Awards from Carole Hochman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Lilly Pulitzer, Destination Maternity and Joan Shepp will be presented in a variety of categories. Both Lilly Pulitzer and Carole Hochman donated fabric for students to use in their creations. A new accessory/jewelry award will be presented thanks to the generosity of noted designer John Wind.

Among those students showcased are 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.
