For the 2016 Project Pink Fashion Show, we’ve recruited talented volunteer fashion designers from the Art Institute of Indianapolis to create new, fashion-forward designs using repurposed 25th annual Central Indiana Race for the Cure t-shirts. Thank you to our 2016 student designers, who give back by contributing to the Project Pink fundraising event and by creating designs to honor and recognize our fabulous group of models.
Magaly is originally from Venezuela. She has traveled and lived in various countries which has exposed her to different cultures, fashion and food. This has influenced how she views fashion and what she chooses to create. While she is considered a senior, graduation will not be as soon for her due to her full time job obligations. She has been enjoying each class while learning as much as she can!
Brittany loves to hang out with friends and browse Pinterest to stay on top of the latest friends. She loves fashion because you can see the different trends that are happening and you are challenged to go outside of your comfort zone. After she graduates she hopes to pursue a career in fashion for children.
Kristal was the winning designer for last year’s Project Pink. Her uncle inspired her to pursue fashion because he is a designer himself who does bridal gowns. She hopes to follow in his footsteps by having her own bridal line and kids wear line. She also aspires to start a charity for kids across the world that can’t afford clothing or have limited clothing.
Luke is a senior who likes designing edgier clothing, as well as bohemian looking clothes.
Anne-Marie has been sewing since she was eight years old, and has always enjoyed creating garments out of old curtains, blankets, and hand me downs. She loves to design liturgical wear and hopes to be doing that after she graduates. This is her first time designing for the Project Pink Fashion Show and she is excited to show her support in honor of her family members who are survivors!
Smriti has always been passionate about designing clothes, and one day decided to give her talent a try and attain a degree in fashion design. In the future she hopes to pursue fashion illustration and apparel construction and eventually open an independent small business. She believes she has something new to offer as a fashion designer because her designs and vibrant colors often differ the norms of western culture!
Haley Maddox has been attending the Art Institute of Indianapolis for a more than two years. This is her last full year in the fashion design program. In addition to school and designing for Project Pink, Haley works at a bridal boutique in Carmel called The Wedding Studio. She enjoys doing fashion illustration in her free time, and wants to design modern bridal after she graduates.
