In the fashion world, there isn't too much emphasis put into showing how and who gets the process of clothing started. We generally see the finished product of decades of accumulated hard work, but what about those that are just starting out? The Stevenson University Fashion Design Program participated in The Nolcha Independent Designer Fashion Show and even though they are still learning, their clothing look like articles from well-season designers. We all have to start somewhere and even if we are born with a gift of some sort, that gift has to be directed and honed into a fine instrument. For an institute of higher learning to be willing to have a curriculum for aspiring fashion designers, and on top of that, support them enough to send them to the upmost indie fashion show says a lot. Their display of very elegant evening dresses, along with camouflage skirts and single-shoulder tank tops, exhibited enough range. So I thought… The students of Stevenson University then showed us how one could make one's imagination come to life. Red strapless jumpsuits with tulle capes. West Asian inspired men's ceremonial outfits, with golden harem pants and shimmering golden flaked shirts. Matching quilted shirt and jogger sets, with peacock feathered chest pieces. Their creations make me excited about what we fashion lovers have in store for the future.
