Led by Ai Austin Fashion Faculty Karen Bravo, the fashion show will feature four of Have Austin’s talented fashion students, each displaying their two favorite designs created in the last term. Helping Karen is Mia Morales, Have Austin student and assistant fashion show producer for this event. After the show, student designers will welcome questions about current designs and upcoming trends during a meet and greet session.
“Our students in the Construction and Pattern and Draping courses learned construction skills such as sewing various seams and techniques such as inserting zippers or adding buttons,” Bravo said. “This means that the public will see unique, one-of-a-kind and experimental fashion design ideas. Planning and producing such a dynamic fashion show like this is truly a great opportunity for our students.”
When: Wednesday March 16 from 5:30 p.m.-6 p.m.. The doors open to 5 p.m. with live music, and the fashion show will be followed by discussion sessions with students and faculty until 6:30 p.m..
Where: Lost Pines Art Center, 1204 Chestnut St, Bastrop, TX 78602
This event is open to the public and offered free of charge.
The four (4) Have Austin fashion design students selected to showcase their work, including.
- Zipporah Neema Nyamuhebe, a graduate student about to graduate, will showcase menswear, mixing classics with her unique African influence. A male and a female model will parade down the catwalk with two distinct but elegant looks.
- Kenah Fuller, a graduate student about to graduate, will show off her handiwork with her delicate and detailed hand-drawn designs through shaping and linework.
- Naomi Holler, a freshman who has wanted to be a fashion designer since childhood. She loves color theory and her designs will show some of her color experiments.
- Sylvie Garcia, a third-year student, will show off her talent for refining sharp design lines and creating the perfect feminine shapes. Mixing fabrics is her strong point, with the aim of creating fresh and modern styles for everyone to enjoy.
“Always impressed with our students and the caliber of their work, we are especially proud to share this event with our community for what is sure to be an inspiring fashion show,” said Harvey M.
