Not My Daughter

On October 14, 2013 The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale Fashion Honors Program under the direction of Sheila Walden, Department Chair, and Chrisa Tatakis, Fashion Design Instructor, put together a fashion show for the organization Not My Daughter, Find a Cure Now. This event was this organization’s fourth annual Shopping Boutique and Luncheon at the Heron Bay Marriott. Not My Daughter, Find a Cure Now is a non-profit organization and is hosted by local women who have been personally affected by breast cancer. Their wish is simple: eradicate the disease so we never have to endure the pain and uncertainty of breast cancer like so many have before.
The project manager for the event was Ashley Duch from the Honors Program. The fashion show featured designs from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale students and alumni: Megan Francis, Jean-Baptiste Riviere, Jasmin Clay, Julia Reyes and chosen children’s wear designers. Along with the fashion show the school was asked to design a scarf for the event to help raise money for breast cancer awareness. There were many submissions and the perfect one was chosen. The designer of the scarf was Marissa Tatakis. At the event the scarves sold out and the Honors Class is pleased to announce we will be making more for the cause.
