This past Saturday, Macy’s held the “Putting It All Together Event” at The Galleria Mall. Select VIPs were treated to a fashion show featuring top must-haves of the Spring/Summer season.  The show, hosted by special guest Anthony Williams of Project Runway’s Season 7, featured four different segments, with looks for every occasion. The Summer segment consisted of flirty sundresses in bright colors with neutral pumps and metallic accessories. The Best of Prints segment included watercolor, ikat, floral, and geometric textiles. The Sparkle segment showed looks adorned with sequins, beads, metallic thread work, and rhinestones. Finally, the Black and White segment featured mostly white cocktail dresses with hints of black here and there, along with muted metallic accessories.

Midway through the show, Anthony chose two VIPs from the audience to compete in a styling competition. The contestants were presented with the following scenario: They are on a cruise and have just been invited to dinner and cocktails, which will be in exactly 10 minutes.  Thus, they had 10 minutes only to create a hot look appropriate for the occasion.  Behind the runway, an assortment of the season’s “It” pieces was available for the contestants to style their models. Team A’s look consisted of an INC shirtdress, Jessica Simpson pumps, and a BCBG handbag. Team B’s look included a BeBe strapless belted dress, Carlos Santana pumps, and a Michael Kors handbag. The audience was then asked to vote for their favorite look by applauding loudly. Team B won the contest, and received a $100 Macy’s gift card.

The show was a great success; with the VIPs purchasing looks right off the runway!  With everything a girl could possibly want to create awesome looks for the upcoming spring and summer seasons, I know I’m definitely going to Macy’s!  See you there!

A special thanks goes out to all of the behind-the-scenes staff that made this fabulous event possible: Alana Bryant, Shivana Narace, Elisa Santiago, Bri Sharpe, and Haley Walker. You ladies rocked!


fashion show “Schematics”

Schematics Fashion Show

On June 13th, 2010 The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale presented their 10th annual student and alumni fashion show. “Schematics” was the theme and name of the show. The event took place at The Renaissance Port Everglades Hotel. Members in charge of directing the show were merchandisers and designers under the direction of Ms. Pierre. Joe Del Sordo led his digital media and video production crew, under the direction of Amy Phillips to organize and execute the success of Schematics.

After a long eventful college journey at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, the eleven Bachelor designers presented their final collection to the local fashion industry. Each line was inspired by different moods, colors, silhouettes, fabrics, and themes ultimately based on the designer’s concepts and vision.

This event was the product of constant work during ten consecutive weeks by the Fashion Show Production class. The victory of their achievements were reflected in the impeccable organization and flow of the show from the runway, lighting, models, garments, make up, guests, and other details that only such a wonderful team could have exhibited.

Las Olas Wine and Food Festival

Another one bites the bullet” Andre West stated as the Fashion Show ended and the eye candy descended on the streets of Las Olas Blvd.


This was our fifth year with the Wine and Food Festivities and to tell you the truth our talent is like wine the older we get the better it produce.


Among some of the designs were The Dear Sweet Cupcake Dress designed by Christian Tinson and the Marshmallow Fondue dress Designed by Lorena Pires that placed first place. The garments all were crafted to resemble a food or to have some type of food included in the garments. The show was a success. We look forward to next year’s showing.
