SEEDlings Student Design With Recycled Materials Alexandra Nam

For the first time, STYLEWEEK partnered with Lincoln School and incorporated High School students to partake in the SEED Student Design Challenge. Willa Summers, a 12th grader from Lincoln School, constructed her warrior themed look primarily out of soda can tabs. They were fused together to resemble chain mail. Ninth grader, Brigitte Lynch Johnson, incorporated her love of physics and coding into her garment. Her look was comprised of umbrellas, bubble wrap, and recycled computer parts. Last but not least, Maeve McEnroe, an 11th grader, was inspired by the culture she was immersed in and experienced while living abroad with her family. McEnroe created a two piece look by weaving newspaper together.

Veils, Veils, Veils First time STYLEWEEK designer, Jamall Osterholm, showcased his collection on Thursday, February 22. Osterholm brought a monochromatic collection to the runway that featured various silhouettes. From oversized puffer garments to translucent fabrics, his collection was full of elemental surprises. One of the favorite factors of his collection were the sheer headdress veils a few of his models wore. They were striking and created a mysterious component to his overall collection.

Mix and Match APD broke all of the typical fashion rules and boundaries. DeBlasio stepped out of the box with her street chic collection by combining an array of textures, patterns, and colors. We saw cheetah print mixed with army print, plaid patterns paired with religious adorned fabric, along with sequins mixed with ruffles. Prismatic colors such as hot pink, neon green, and royal blue were also present throughout the collection. ShopInRI 39
