The Fashion School at Kent State University is currently accepting applications for the Summer Fashion School Academy, a one-week program that introduces high school students to key areas in fashion design and merchandising.

"The Fashion School Academy will allow creative, motivated teens to explore their passion for fashion in a pre-college, summer residence program," said academy coordinator Marji Wachowiak. "Our mission is to inspire creative and resourceful fashion leaders."

The Summer Fashion School Academy is intended for students ages 16 to 18 who have completed their sophomore year of high school and are interested in exploring careers in the $4 billion fashion industry. The 2015 academy session will take place June 14 through 20, with applications and payment due May 17. The camp is all-inclusive and includes six nights in a Kent State residence hall, all meals, supplies and materials.

The program offers a carefully curated series of lessons and activities that approach fashion from multiple angles, examining both the design and business aspects. Students will work individually and in teams to complete a variety of creative projects, including creating a finished garment from an original design, using the digitally equipped TechStyleLAB to design an accessory and producing a cumulative fashion show at the end of the week.

"The Summer Fashion School Academy will be a unique opportunity for teens interested in fashion careers to explore the underlying mechanisms and processes of the fashion world," Wachowiak said. "Furthermore, the academy offers students a true preview of the college experience, preparing teens for the expectations, rigors and opportunities of college life."Read more here:red cocktail dress | princess formal dresses

Lighted clothing that flashes to beat of music will hit runway

These clothes soon may be all the rave: Fiber science and physics students have teamed to create fashionable “smart” garments with vivid, luminescent panels that pulse to music.

Undergraduates will model “Irradiance” – a collection of electrogarments designed by Eric Beaudette ’16, fiber science; Lina Sanchez Botero, graduate student in the field of fiber science; and Neal Reynolds, graduate student in the field of physics – on the runway at the Cornell Fashion Collective, Saturday, April 11, at 8 p.m. at Barton Hall.

“This collection is inspired by the future – and present – of wearable technology being more and more integrated into fashion and daily life,” explains Beaudette. “These garments depict our vision of fashion of the future, having increased function and compatibility with devices, such as smartphones.”

The fabricated, fashionable clothes capture your attention. They shimmer with optical fiber cloth illuminated by controllable RGB LEDs (red-green-blue light-emitting diodes) and strips of electroluminescent tape. The lights react to the beat of the music thanks to an Arduino microcontroller integrated into each garment.

Beyond the sparkling shirts and pulsating pants, runway models will be wearing original, custom-made shoes, created using such techniques as 3-D printing and laser cutting.

The designer team explained that a big challenge is maintaining harmony between the materials, technologies and construction. “Garments with circuitry and other technologies add layers of complexity, especially since these technologies were not originally designed for use with clothing,” Beaudette said.

For the team’s runway display, Natani Notah ’14 will complete the hair and makeup for the models: Emily Roehr ’16, majoring in operations research engineering with a Dyson School business minor; Lauren Cagnassola ’15, environmental engineering; Joel Lawson ’16, chemical engineering; and Madeleine Galvin ’18, nutrition and pre-dental.

The team partnered with a division of Myant & Co., a wearable and embedded technology group; Architects of Intelligent Applications for electroluminescent tape; and Sensing Tex for fiber optics.Read more here:long formal dresses
