Albright Senior Introduces Local Elementary Students to the World of Fashion and Storytelling
Costume student Susie Benitez '15 spent the spring semester working on a project called Once Upon a Runway, with local elementary school students. Benitez assigned each student a children's book and asked them to create drawings and paper clothes based on the books. Benitez then designed each child a costume, inspired by their artwork. The students will model the costumes at Albright's fashion showcase on May 9.

Shop-Rite Knock Out Hunger T-Shirt Design Contest
This past fall, Shop-Rite Partners in Caring held a T-Shirt Design Contest to support their Knock Out Hunger Campaign. The objective of the contest was to create a design that would evoke empathy for hunger awareness. Four students from Albright College (Andre Jackson, Payal Patel, Sarah Rowe, Alysha Miller) were selected in the top 15 finalists for the contest. In February they were invited to the unveiling event at the Time Warner Center in NYC during fashion week. The students had the pleasure of meeting two celebrity judges, Jeannie Mai, host of Style Network’s “How Do I Look?” and Korto Momolu, from BRAVO’s “Project Runway”.
