Silver Needle Runway 2016

Last Friday night I was at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center where for the 30th annual year, Marist College Fashion presented the Silver Needle Runway Show. To begin can I just say how blown away I was with the show production. Running an event all comes down to the details as lighting, sound, seating, great staff, and so on. In my past three years of attending I am still beyond impressed with the show to the point where it has to be on the same scale as NYFW, if not surpassing that. Literal fashion heaven.

The Silver Needle Runway Show & Awards takes the attendees on a fashion experience showcasing what comes out of four-years of development and rigorous study in becoming a designer or merchandiser. The focus shined upon the thirteen senior designers and their individual collections. A few sophomores and juniors also had the opportunity to present which was pretty cool because I can't wait to see their masterpieces in years to come.

Everything strutted down the runway had such a fresh appeal keeping me glued the entire time. Clean silhouettes, tropical influences, ruffles, minimalism, detailed knits. Every designer was so uniquely identifiable showing their technique and personal story. A similar concept among them all was the overall ready-to-wear accessibility. Personally, I could picture styling outfits with many of the pieces worn. At the end of the show the awards were announced and winner of Best Collection went to the amazing, Renee Pedigo. I had the special honor to interview Renee when I was on campus checking out what goes on in studio a few weeks before the show. Her line was so impressive with beautiful knits and creative construction. Seriously well deserved! Huge congratulations to the graduating class and lots of luck, but clearly with their amount of talent they have nothing to worry about!
