Nassau BOCES Students Strut Their Stuff On The Runway

Sean Flynn from the Bellmore Merrick CHSD, designed his ensemble from scratch.

Nassau BOCES Barry Tech presented its annual fashion show recently, with students strutting their original and colorful creations for an appreciative audience.

The event, “50 & Fabulous” gave a nod to Nassau BOCES half-century anniversary. With help from Party Harty and Party Expressions, the school’s meeting room was transformed into a beautiful setting, complete with elegant decorations and a lighted runway. The fashions, designed and created by Fashion Design Technology students, included everything from funky day casual to elegant evening wear. Most of the students wore their own creations. Other budding designers, who shied away from the spotlight, had a classmate walk the runway for them.

It was all under the guidance of Barry Tech Fashion Design Technology teacher Deanna Costello and her aide, Maria Araujo.

“We wanted to celebrate learning and the 50 years of Nassau BOCES,” said Costello. “The students attending the fashion program created and constructed their own garments. They learn industry standard sewing and fashion illustration. They love what they do, and are very eager to showcase their creations. Everything went beautifully.”
