Another Special Thank You…

To Martha Chery…aka “Cheri Marie”! Martha was our model choreographer for this year’s Runway 5.0! We recently interviewed her for her thoughts on this year’s Runway.

RW: What was your role in Runway 5.0?

CM: Runway Model Choreographer/Model Whisperer

 

RW: What were your thoughts on the models this year?
CM: The models were like my babies and seeing them transform into runway divas made me feel like a proud mama!

My three rules to transformation:
1: Shoulders back until it feels funny!
2: Head and eyes straight ahead!
3: Pretend that the camera is boyfriend/girlfriend!

RW: What did you like about Runway, especially this year?:

CM: I’ve been with Runway since 2.0 and every year it gets bigger and better! The light projection show at the start of 5.0 was AMAZING! The rap performance and collaboration with New Era and VitaminWater were a great addition too the show as well. As a graduating senior this my last runway show an I couldn’t have asked for anything more!

 

RW: What are your thoughts on the winning designer?

CM: I’m so happy that Kathryn won! We studied abroad together and I saw firsthand the hard work she put into her collection from start to finish. She deserved it!

 

RW: Who would you like to say thank you to?
CM: I want to thank Erin Habes for letting me be a part of this RUNWAY legacy and for being an amazing mentor.
I want to thank the entire production class and volunteers for making sure the ins and outs of the show ran smoothly.
And also to all of my models who took the time to work the runway and the hair and makeup teams that made them beautiful.

 

Once again, thank you to Martha for her amazing work in this year’s Runway! If you would like to contact her, click here for her link to Facebook.

Interview: Senior Designer Faith Scheffer

Faith Scheffer from the fashion/textile design technologies concentration has created a senior digital fabric design collection in addition to engineered garment designs  for Runway 5.0. She developed four silk yardages that will be wrapped into sarongs for her Runway scene, she also developed surface patterns for two engineered garment designs. Arkeida Wilson collaborated with her for garment pattern development and  garment construction. -Elaine Polvinen

 

RW: Tell us a little about yourself:

FS: I am from the city of Rochester (town of Spencerport), New York. I am 20 years old and a junior at buff state. I have always loved everything to do with the arts (drawing, painting, theater [i have been in 3 summer musicals] music [voice and instrument lessons] dance, and of course fashion). 

RW: Why did you choose Buffalo State College to start your fashion career?

FS: I chose Buffalo State College because I love that it is close to home (I like being able to make the short trip home over breaks and on weekends during my college years) and has a great fashion program. 

RW: How have you developed as a designer since starting Buffalo State?

FS: I definitely believe that I have developed as a designer since coming to Buffalo State. My main focus is Fashion CAD, and I have learned so much about the new technologies available to us today and the ways we can create beautiful works of art using apparel as our canvas.

RW: What is your inspiration for Runway 5.0?

FS: My inspiration for my Runway 5.0 collection is drawn from Hawaii. I have taken different elements of this dream destination (water life, flora, and volcanoes) and used them to create bright pieces that showcase the beauty of the tropical state.

RW: What your plans for the future?

FS: My plans for the future have changed many times, but as of now I think I’ve found an area that suits me best. I am hoping to find a CAD job in the area of textile design.

RW: Who is your designer or style icon?

FS: I really admire Oscar de la Renta as a designer, his dresses are always so gorgeous, and I am obsessed with Rachel Zoe and her styling abilities. Both, as designer and stylist, never cease to amaze me.

Interview: Senior Designer Alana Fogel

Runway 5.0 is TOMORROW! The designers are preparing their last minute touches to their garments, and the production team is setting up an amazing venue at the Pierce Arrow Building. One of the senior designers, Alana Fogel, tells us a little about her collection, as well as her journey into becoming a designer.

 

RW: Tell me a little about yourself (where you are from, age, hobbies)?

AF: So im 22 years old, born in Brooklyn, and currently living on Long Island. I am a drummer, a huge New York Rangers fan, a radio talk show host and a movie enthausist.

 

RW: Why did you ultimately pick Buffalo State College to kick-start your fashion career?

AF: Buffalo State sort of picked me. I was accepted as a freshman but chose another school and hated it. Which lead me to my transfer as a sophmore to Buffalo and now I will be finishing my degree from here.

 

RW: How have you developed as a designer since you entered BSC?

AF: I know the growing process is still occuring and will be noticed more when I am working in my future. 

 
RW: Where have you drawn your inspiration from for you Runway 5.0 collection?

AF: My inspiration for my collection was 1940’s war movies. I love history and movies and the 40’s was a time period I didn’t get a chance to review the fashion and I wanted to bring something old and turn it modern – for a sophisticated woman.

 

RW: Where do you plan on taking your fashion career in the future?
AF: I aspire to have a bridal gown company that turns global. I would be interested in special occasion as well, but wedding gowns has always been my passion.

RW: Who is your designer or style icon?

AF: To pick just one icon would just be cruel. I love everything from Betsey Johnson to Oscar De La Renta.
