With our Student night quickly approaching we thought you would like to get to know a little bit about the young designers included in the show.
Grace Neary for Grace62 Designs
Sydney Moore began sewing at the young age of eight with her grandmother Kathy. The 12 year old had always received a lot of support from her family and friends, when it came to sewing and designing. Last summer Sydney joined us for Fashion Camp and was amazed at the fact that there were students just a little older than her getting their designs on the runway. Sydney will be showing in our student night as a first step in her dream of someday making it to Paris with her designs.
Caleb Hanner, a college student at Iowa State University, had not always taken the path of design. Caleb had began his college education majoring in music, as he grew more and more unhappy with it he knew it was time for a change. Though he had always loved fashion, it wasn't until he volunteered at the March 2014 show that he knew his new career direction. Caleb began sketching in the spring and June he began sewing. By the end of the summer he had made his first outfit and is now ready to show his complete line at Student night.
As a child Grace Neary drew designs much like she does today but at the time she believed if she took them to the department store they could magically make them for her. Eventually she learned to sew her designs her self with the help of grandmother and her trusty Vogue Sewing Book. The high schooler is inspired by much of the designs from the the 60's and the time of change. As Grace was designing this line she was going through a time of change of her own. The loss of her grandfather played a major role in her designs and can not wait to honor him with her line on Student Night.
