  • Margie Paolicchi

    Kent State University senior fashion design major Margie Paolicchi has been sewing for 12 years. What was once a hobby became a career choice the minute she realized she could apply her creativity to an occupation in the fashion industry. Paolicchi has spent the past few years studying design, interning at big-name labels and working on her collection for the spring fashion show, Re:Create.
  • Chelsea Paskvan

    Growing up in Huntington Beach, Calif., senior fashion design major Chelsea Paskvan was born with a scientist’s eye and a sophisticate’s sense of beauty. Moving east and attending the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Paskvan taught fashion design and construction before bringing her talent to Kent, Ohio, and spreading it across the globe.
  • Emily Nash

    Re:CREATE, The Annual Spring Fashion Show was held Saturday April 24, at Kent State University, featuring designs from over 60 fashion design students. One of those students was senior fashion design student Emily Nash.
  • Melissa Kubik

    In the midst of senior “Hades Week” - the absolutely busiest week of the year for seniors - I had the pleasure of meeting with the beautiful and talented Melissa Kubik. Melissa is a senior fashion designer at Kent State University, and she enthusiastically prepares and puts the finishing touches on her garments before presenting them. In spite of her chaotic schedule, I was able to meet with her to ask her a few questions regarding her very glamorous collection.
  • Natalie Jupp

    Natalie Jupp always loved art and shopping while growing up in Cincinnati. She enjoyed being creative, and when she began learning how to sew in high school, she was guided in the direction of studying fashion design at Kent State University. Natalie chose to major in technical design, dealing with pattern making and construction of garments.
  • Melissa Egbers

    Melissa Egbers is the kind of person who you can immediately tell is confident, beautiful and a total fashion guru.
  • Rebecca Del Pizzo

    Fashion design technical major Rebecca Del Pizzo won't tell you that her favorite part of her major is designing. As the name of her major indicates, she looks more toward the construction of pieces rather than the designing process.
  • Ashley Angresano

    Simple, elegant, luxurious – a small combination of elements that, when applied properly in a design, can steal your breath away. For many women, it is precisely that combination that they seek out when searching for the most important dress that they will ever wear: their wedding gown. By designing a collection of wedding gowns that impeccably execute this combination of elements, Ashley Angresano, has accomplished her final task as a track II technical fashion design major at Kent State University.
  • Building Fashion

    On April 16, over 300 students and community members filled the ballroom of the Kent State Student Center to support The Kent State Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter. During the event, titled “Building Fashion,” participating designers were each given two old Habitat for Humanity T-shirts.
