NFA Fashion Design Students Host 2017 Fashion Show
Students from the Newburgh Free Academy Career and Technical Education Fashion Design pathway held their culminating Annual Fashion Show on Wednesday, May 17, 2017. The pathway is designed for students who have an interest in designing and making clothes. Earlier in the school year, the students traveled to New York City to select fabric and meet with industry professionals.
Fashion Design students are required to create original fashionable designs and an emphasis is placed on cutting, assembling, fitting and finishing a professional garment from the basic pattern to the finished product. Students receive instruction in hand sewing, machine sewing, pattern layout, draping, and tailoring to make garments. The curriculum and courses are geared for college preparation within this field of study.
