2018 Fusion Fashion Show

Fashion Show Details

Students in the Fashion Design and Merchandising program at Erie 1 BOCES displayed their handmade outfits on the runway for all to see during the 2018 FUSION Fashion Show: Industrial Revolution at Buffalo State College.

Now in its ninth year, the FUSION Fashion Show on Thursday, March 15, 2018 showcased the work of nearly a dozen seniors from high schools across Western New York. The show took place at 7 p.m. in the college’s Campbell Student Union Social Hall, 1300 Elmwood Ave., Buffalo.

Students who exhibited work at the fashion show included Elizabeth Acevedo of John F. Kennedy High School, James Bachraty and Briana Kliber of Cheektowaga Central High School, Ailin Fire of East Aurora High School, Jasmine Selapack of Kenmore East High School, Mariah Rodriquez of Sweet Home Senior High School and Jalen Reed of Williamsville South High School.

Erie 1 BOCES’ two-year Fashion Design and Merchandising program at the Harkness Career & Technical Center teaches students how to dress, style and create trends based on design elements and the fashion cycle. Students also create a successful business plan for a fashion boutique, setting them up for future success.

Jeans, T-shirts and dress shirts were accepted at the fashion show as part of a donation drive to benefit Goodwill of Western New York. The students’ upcycled fashions that were featured at the show were created from clothing items donated to the class by Goodwill.
