Students in the
Santa Fe Community College Fashion Design Program
have been spending long hours in front of their sewing machines. They're preparing designs for a premiere at the
SFCC Student Fashion Show
this Friday evening.---
17 design students
experience their first real fashion show.
The event is the brainchild of Samantha McDermott-Goldie, a third-semester student in the Design Program.
"It started out as an idea between myself and a friend. I sort of took the reins of the whole thing," McDermott-Goldie says. "I've organized the space, the wiring, the models, the photographers, the people who do the hair and the makeup. It takes a lot of people to get something like this together."
The Design Program at SFCC is the only accredited program of its type in any public school statewide
. Over 100 students are enrolled in the program, studying everything from computer design modeling to illustrating techniques to the history of fabric-making.
"The show is great in that it showcases all sorts of students' work," McDermott-Goldie says. "We've got students from all levels of experience. From those just starting out…all the way up to design student."
