The seniors from the County Prep Fashion Design and Merchandising program visited Mood Fabrics in New York City this week. Mood Fabrics is the store where the design contestants from the Emmy-nominated show, Project Runway, shop for their fabrics and trimmings. The fabric purchased by the students
will be used to construct garments for FCCLA competitions and the County Prep Fashion Show. During this structured learning experience, students demonstrated their planning and time management skills,
critical thinking, and problem-solving strategies as well as research skills and the elements and principles of visual art. Cost analyses were used to determine the fabric consumption of the purchases. We look forward to seeing the finished designs on the runway this May at
the County Prep fashion show.
Students were excited to have their picture taken with” Swatch” the mascot of Mood Fabrics who has appeared in numerous Project Runway episodes since 2007.
