Today, I had the pleasure of volunteering with New York Edge at the annual Girl Redesigned, hosted at Adelphi University in Long Island. At this event, students designed, sewed and modeled their own designs! It was very impressive to see these K-12 students see their designs through from beginning to end.
The designs were very creative, as were the performances. Each school had a different theme, from what do you want to be when you grow up to athletic wear.
I am no designer, but I was able to assist the students with my runway experience and teach the students how to walk, pose and own the runway with confidence!
In addition to volunteering with New York Edge, I also sit as co-chair of the New York Edge Young Professionals Council, which I also helped to co-found!
