Last night, the design community in Boston came together for the annual IIDA Fashion Show Benefit Gala at the Boston Convention Center. This year, the entering teams focused on fifteen years of fashion and design. The NESAD team, consisting of BFA students Sarah Gosson, Luke Tanguay and Jennifer Reyes, as well as MA students Yiwei Zhang, Mel McGilvrey, Mary Schambach, Carol Williams and Moniqua Williams; chose style icon Barbie to inspire their designs. In conjunction with ArcCom and McKearney Assosiates, the team, lead by Professor Nancy Hackett, designed several Barbie-inspired pieces, including Malibu Barbie and Wedding Barbie. Hours upon hours of planning, designing and constructing all paid off when the group tied for first place for Best School Entry for the second year in a row! Congratualtions to you all on your outstanding work and win!
