Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale students and faculty gathered at the Mark K. Wheeler Art Gallery on July 30th, for a closing Dye Gallery Fashion Show. Faculty created artwork by using a dye sublimation technique, and collaborated with the Fashion Design Students to convert art into fashion. They created a total of 15 individual pieces. Dr. West and Mrs. Tatakis then had a wonderful idea of actually bringing art to life by developing a fashion show. Rachel Stone, project manager with the help of Fashion Honors and Fashion Show Production students worked very hard to produce a show as well as provide food and beverages for the guests. As the models walked to the beat of the music everyone joined in and socialized, while being surrounded by art!


Vintage Fashion Show

On July 28th the Vintage Fashion Show took place in the center of the Indie Fest action at Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. There were a total of 500 attendees and 60 vendors within the venue. Andrew Vincent, owner of Public Image Vintage Boutique reached out to both Dr. West and Mrs. Tatakis for assistance in producing this show. They then translated the information to their students from both Fashion Honors and Fashion Show Production class of the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. Rachel Stone, Project Manager and Andrew Vincent worked together in making this event happen in less then two weeks. The Show consisted of forty looks put together by Emily Vernon, and Ana Escalante. Both models and students had to be quick on there feet to make sure all the looks went out in a timely manor. The Vintage Fashion Show resulted in extreme success and an enjoyable show to produce.
