Fey Chavez, former high school student of New Haven, entered in a contest in the middle of September called KC Fashion Week, where she was able to show the judges her creative fashion work. She’s currently attending Stephens College, where she found out about the competition from Dean Monica McMurry. The competition went from October 8th to the 14th.
When asked who hosted the competition, Fey said, “It was hosted by KC Fashion Week. Stephens College is now a sponsor and they wanted two students to present to Michael Drummond and Joshua Christianson, previous contestants on ‘Project Runway.’ Out of the two students, one was selected to show their Fall/Winter 2018 collection in the March 2018 show.”
The competition is now over, and Fey Chavez was the lucky winning designer. The next step in her career is to create her senior collection for March 2018.
According to Chavez, her major is Fashion Design and Product Development.
“My plans after college are to go work for a corporate fashion company similar to the one I interned at last summer in New York City,” Chavez commented. “I am very interested in designing menswear and will be showing a menswear collection at KCFW. I would love to move to New York for a couple of years and then look into doing my own thing and relocating in the future.”
Fey was asked if she’s in any clubs or sports at Stephens, and she responded by saying she is the president of Alpha Lambda Delta.
Good luck on the Fall/Winter 2018 Collection!
