The fashion Students of Aifl were challenged to make or style garments that Beyonce Knowles would wear. Among those student designers were Brandy Harris, Sheila Rodriguez and Alinne Netto. The garments and models were judged by the crowd. In first place came Brandy Harris. His garments are now being displayed in the window on the right hand side of the elevators.
