(Philadelphia, PA) CW Philly TV Special Features Fashions by Moore Seniors

This summer, viewers tuned into CW Philly 57 for their fill of fashion, summer fun and a look at the designs of Moore's recent graduates. The collections of five recent fashion design graduates of Moore College of Art & Design were featured in the 30-minute "Summer Philadelphia Fun 2008" on the CW Philly 57. The special aired twice in June, on the 21st and 28th, and once on July 4. The fashions came straight from the runway success of Moore's Fashion Show 2008, held at Sunday May 18 at the Sheraton Society Hill in Philadelphia.

Senior Fashion Design Collections by:

Ivy Kelm - A fun active sportswear collection featuring hand-pleated skirt and mix and match layers.

Carol Lukasik - A collection of all organic cotton. She is working on an organic farm outside of State College PA. Collaborated on button jewelry with junior Samantha Ernst, who sells her work at The Art Shop at Moore.

Jakia Handy - Won "Best of Show" this year at the Fashion Show. Jakia used Moore Basics Chair and Fine Arts Professor Moe Brooker's original art printed on silk, hand-embroidered details

Diva Borrelli - Couture draping and finishing techniques were used for the champaigne and gold-colored eveningwear collection.

Bianca Lindblad - Hand-beaded and embroidered corsets, hand-knit and crocheted tops make up this fanciful collection unlike anything you'll find off the rack.
