Via Paserella, Italian for "On the Runway," is the theme for Moore's annual Jumpstart Fashion Show. The annual Project Runway-style event will take place Wednesday, October 1, 6pm in The Great Hall.
Once the theme is announced at the start if the school year, the fashion design students have just one month to come up with and execute their creations. This year, Moore's acclaimed Fashion Design department has partnered with The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and its annual Philadelphia Flower Show, the largest indoor flower show in the world, whose theme for its 2009 extravaganza is Bella Italia. In keeping with the theme, juniors and seniors are designing garments inspired by Italian artists, sculptors, designers and architects. Select student designs will be featured at The Philadelphia Flower Show, March 1-8, 2009.
Jumpstart is free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
