Marist College fashion show

November 26th, 2007

Nadine Kam videoWhat a treat for Honolulu to be able to view a fashion show staged by Marist College, whose students and faculty traveled all the way from Poughkeepsie, New York, to be with us the evening of Nov. 23.

The show was short but sweet, with segments wrapped around a video presentation geared toward prospectivie students who might be interested in enrolling in the school’s fashion and merchandising program. The show is an abbreviated version of the school’s Silver Needle Fashion Show staged each spring. Because of the school’s proximity to Manhattan, it is a magnet for designers in search of recruits, and Marc Jacobs is said to have attended the school’s last fashion show.

Makes me wish I could design, but I don’t think I’m cut out for that. I can stare at beautiful fabric for hours and not know what to do with it. When it comes to those “Project Runway” design challenges, it would take me 24 hours to come up with an idea. Their sketch for 30 minutes and go shopping rules wouldn’t work for me. Shopping for fabric would be another problem. I’d need 24 hours for that too. I’d do much better as a stylist, pulling together finished pieces.
