Visions of La Moda students excel

A student fashion show on April 21st raised funds for Visions of La Moda Fashion Studio for Youth, a Bayview Hunters Point organization that provides youth ages 12-18 with a free introduction to the fashion industry. 

The funds will help with expenses for exceptional students to participate in the New York Collections - Fashion Week either in September or in February of 2012. Star students Chante Mobley and Arielle Piamonte modeled garments they designed and made.

Runway 2011: Enchantment, held at at the Galleria San Francisco Design Center, was a partnership production of the Fashion Networking Association and the Apparel Design and Merchandising program at San Francisco State University.

Traci Peace, Visions' founding director, reported how proud she was of Chante and Arielle who, she said, "had never sewn anything prior to starting the program this past summer."

Chante and Arielle are pictured wearing their own designs.
