NFA Students Showcase Future Of Fashion 2009: Newburgh 8212

NFA students showcase Future of Fashion

NEWBURGH — The Newburgh Free Academy students of Fashion II and III recently presented “The Future of Fashion” for friends, family, and community members.
This year there were 22 students designers in addition to numerous models. Each year, the elaborate production requires various classes and departments to come together for a night of fun and fashion. Cosmetology students worked with models and designers on hair and makeup for the performance. In addition, students from a digital photography class were behind the lens capturing their classmates as they walked the runway and prepared to “strike a pose” in the crowded NFA auditorium. At this year’s event, proceeds from each ticket sold went to the Carly Fund, created in memory of the late Carly Sigelbaum, who was a student in the Newburgh School District. Fashion teacher Karen Stafford said a $500 donation will be presented to the charity May 16 at the Carly’s Kids Day event at Chadwick Lake in Newburgh.
Student designers this year included Brogan Kavanagh, Cynthia Valdez, Catherine Kotlowski, Caitlyn Giampaolo, Francia Villavincencio, Re’Karri Walker, Ellisha Dubuisson, The’as Fortune, Jasmine Atkins, Edie Dejean, Molly Hoarty, Stephanie Mineo, Shavaughn Stewart, Jennifer Nunez, Destiny Rivera, Angelica Diaz, Josette Ramnani, April Rosscup, Tyler McCoy, Jessica Marin, Mystique Washington, and Chanet Sawyer.
