A local designer is using her hand-sewn fashion collection to raise awareness for victims of sexual exploitation.
This past Tuesday, Steve Madden came to visit UF for a live interview with CollegeFashionista founder Amy Levin and an open floor Q&A session with students. Those in attendance were required to RSVP for the event.
With a pressure-inducing work period of only eight weeks, Raf Simons, creative director for the French fashion house Dior, must create his first collection amid various constraints in Frederic Tcheng’s new documentary, “Dior and I.”
With only one week until their clothing line is shown in the Belk contest final round, two Gainesville designers are working harder than ever.
