I had the pleasure of attending Launch, a runway showcase of work from Columbia College Chicago Senior Fashion Studies students held on May 15th. I specifically went to see our intern Kelcie McCurdy‘s collection of light and dreamy designs presented on the runway. Not only is Kelcie a journalist, but she is also a fashion designer! She graduated with the perfect double major, if you ask me! Kelcie’s designs are ethereal and artistic but also quite wearable. The runway show at the Media Production Center was top-notch. The models and upbeat music made for a wonderful celebration of fashion for the Columbia Seniors who all showed fabulous designs. Congratulations to Kelcie and all the fashion graduates.
Special thanks for this event went to Tricoci University of Beauty Culture and Driehaus Design Initiative.
