We are down to five designers.
The remaining designers are completing their last challenges before the finale this Friday, June 21.
It’s 3 pm on Wednesday.
The designers have completed their first challenge and are well underway on their second challenge
Yesterday’s challenge started at 10 am and the designers had until 10 pm to finish. They worked in teams of three to complete the task. Cameras were rolling.
Also yesterday the designers shopped for materials at Fleishman Fabrics & Supplies. They also got a tour of the fashion studio and a sewing machine tutorial.
“It has been a good experience so far,” one of the contestants said. “I’m excited to see what the other challenges are.”

Courtney La Prince lived in nine different foster homes before the age of 17, but at Moore, she found her family. "It has been such a long journey," she said. La Prince said that without the generous scholarship from Iva and Joseph Samost to help her pay for her education, she would not be a part of this new family. "It has been such a blessing because I was able to complete my senior year without worrying about the hardship of finances."
“I really love the school and I’m really happy,” she said. “I always wanted to feel part of a…
Moore students were highlighted in the spring/summer issue of the Mercy Hospice newsletter, "Mercy Matters."
This past Christmas, students donated bags full of hand knitted hats and scarves to the women and children of Mercy Hospice. This service project, conceived by Stacey Angelillo, an art education major, was intended as an opportunity for students to spend time together, knitting and socializing, for a worthwhile cause. Over 20 students participated in the event.
When asked why the group chose Mercy as the recipient of their donation, Assistant Dean of Students Emily Johnson said, "Since Moore is an all female school, I thought…
It’s 12:45 pm on a rainy Friday at Moore College of Art & Design.
The first few designers are trickling in for “KING ON 34th," a competition-based fashion reality show filming at Moore and centered around fashion and business icon J. Alexander Martin of FUBU.
“We’re hoping the rain is a good thing,” said Melissa D’Agostino of D’Agostino Fashion Textile Design, a Moore alumna and executive consultant on the show. “It puts a more contemplative start to what’s going to happen here.”
The show is built around 12 designers who will work in groups, potentially featuring Moore fashion design…
Alumna Jill Bonovitz '74 and her husband Sheldon were on CBS Sunday morning last Sunday when the show did a piece on "Great and Mighty Things": Outsider Art from the Collection of Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Look close, Sheldon is wearing a necktie designed by Moore alumna Kendra Ranck '12.
Bonnie (Goetz) Smith '62 is a “shoe-in” for miles traveled.
For 30 years Smith, a Moore alumna, was a designer of fashion forward women’s shoes for American companies in 10 different countries.
“My shoes have been in virtually every department and specialty store in America,” she said.
As this profession requires constant travel over great distances – Monday in Hong Kong, Tuesday and Wednesday in Taiwan, Thursday and Friday in Indonesia, then off to China on Monday – Smith decided about 16 years ago to make a career change.
Today, she is a sales professional at Land Rover Thousand Oaks in…
