Good day to the few Fusion fans who read this blog! Fusion 2010 has been up and running for some time and we are so excited for the show this year. After some help from some very dedicated F.I.T. designers and students, we finally have a F.I.T. advisor. Her name is Karen Middleton and she is a dream come true. She is enthusiastic, supportive, a proponent of talent, and extremely nice. Thank you, Karen, for believing in the show.
The designers this year are exceptional and leading the charge are more menswear designers than we’ve ever had. At least 6 designers are doing mens, and we couldn’t be more excited. Of course, that means male models and we are excited for them too!!!
As of right now, we are searching for more judges and sponsors. Damien Nunes, an old friend and fashion editor of GQ, has agreed to judge the show. We are thrilled. MaryKate Steinmiller from Teen Vogue is also on board for the second year in a row. We absolutely love having such a prestigious publication participate in your judging process and look forward to Teen Vogue igniting many careers by their very presence.
Our model casting call was a fun, interesting one. Too bad we don’t allow childrenswear, because an 8 year old model came in, walked like you’ve never seen, and stole the show. We found a lot of great models and truly appreciate the time and energy they put into the show.
Finally, I would like to welcome Jovana Mirabile to the fashion team. She is working on our Public Relations and you won’t find a more dynamic, hard-working, sweet person around. I’m excited to see the impact she has on our show!
See you soon,
