20171128_103825

Meet one of our senior designers, Valeasha Collins. This year for interconnect her collection showcases activewear that has high- fashion details, to appear more elegant and dressy.

Becoming a fashion design major was an obvious choice to make. At 11 years old Valeasha had sparked an interest in designing Barbie clothes out of old clothing. She attempted to sell them to her neighbors in an apartment complex she lived in. Later on, she took initiative in learning how to sew and render fashion illustration her senior year of high school, which helped prepare Valeasha to build her fashion education here at Buffalo State.

The challenges Valeasha has faced for Runway 11 is finding a balance between school work, a part-time job, and having a personal life. She would have to look at her planner to make sure she was on top of everything. What she is excited about is being able to see all the work from her colleagues.

After this year at Buffalo State, Valeasha plans on working full-time while finding freelance work as a fashion designer. She also wants to start fulfilling some of her goals such as traveling to new places, volunteering, and learning new skills.

Runway 11: Interconnect

BannerRunway 11: Interconnect

As we look to Spring 2019 future trends, we are faced with the challenge of creating balance. The idea of cause and effect, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Fashion evolves into creating solutions that result in new actions. Our Runway 11 theme “Interconnect,” is an instrument used to connect two things together. This is where community, curiosity, culture, and creativity meet, and open a dialogue for change.

Our inspiration is from WGSN Spring/Summer 2019 visions: Common Ground, In Touch, Creative Manifesto and Action/Reaction.
