BERKELEY COLLEGE FASHION MARKETING AND MANAGEMENT STUDENTS
RUN FASHION SHOW AT NEIMAN MARCUS LAST CALL STUDIO IN PARAMUS
When students from the Fashion Marketing and Management degree program at Berkeley College were invited to run a fashion show at Neiman Marcus Last Call Studio in the Bergen Town Center in Paramus, they jumped into action. The result was a show titled “Rocking Around in Holiday Trends” that brought festive cheer and the latest styles to holiday shoppers. Students from a number of different disciplines volunteered as models for the show.
“The Berkeley College students’ enthusiasm and commitment made this fashion show possible and resulted in a fun, upbeat and creative event being held at our store,” said Iwona Niemiec, Store Manager, Nieman Marcus Last Call Studio.
Ms. Niemiec is looking forward to working with the students again and hopes that they will host another fashion show in the spring.
“The fashion show was a wonderful learning experience that helped us bring all of the pieces we learned in the classroom into a real-life situation,” said Julie Vinolas, a Fashion Marketing and Management student, who served as a coordinator of the show and also is Editor in Chief of Berkeley Fashion, a student magazine at Berkeley College in Paramus. “Berkeley College students ran the whole event. We chose the theme and the music, handled the technology, served as stylists and make-up artists, acted as models and commented on fashion trends.”
