2021 Fashion Show

On Wednesday, May 12, the fashion students came out of COVID-19 quarantine to celebrate their designs. Although fashion students and the RCBC community missed last year’s Annual Fashion Show, this year they were determined to show their resiliency and dedication to their craft. The department is so proud of their students who worked through virtual and hybrid courses and met the course demands during these trying times. Here are some of the students’ outstanding fashion collections that were designed, pattern-drafted, pro-typed and finally made into clothes for the models.

 

All Dressed in White
Jennifer Shultz

Jennifer Shultz stands between her models. Her collection “All Dressed in White'' was a thesis project for FAD 222 Fashion Collection. Jennifer stepped out of her comfort zone when she became fascinated by the white dresses of the Women’s Suffragette movement  during the early 20th century. Her interests  were devoted to women who broke barriers by “borrowing  from the boys'' and utilitarian workwear, as well as soft silhouettes. The collection was paired with soft sheer silks, sturdy wools and velvets to show the structured and soft side of how women choose to be noticed in their clothes.

Sonder
Sydney Boyle

Sydney Boyle is holding the quilted jacket from her collection “Sonder.” Her model wears a corset with red strings that includes a photographic print of her family. Through her designs, Sydney tells the story of her unique and richly diverse family by quilting family photos on the oversized jacket and corset. Her journey into the fashion world starts at RCBC and will continue to the Fashion Institute of Technology this fall.

Paradise Devil
Frankie Sanchez

Frankie Sanchez stands between her models and collection “Paradise Devil.” Her playful sportswear line was inspired by her love of Japanese anime. The designs express her aesthetics in this fun streetwear collection that can be worn any time. Each garment was hand painted in strategic sections to show off her favorite anime graphics.
