HBCU Student Wins Design Competition
Harlem’s Fashion Row University (HFR-U) was started to enhance undergraduate students’ knowledge of the fashion industry by offering professional development opportunities, including practical training and mentoring through workshops and creative events.
This spring they’ve partnered with McCafe to launch a Student Design Competition. The winner TraVonne Walker from Bowie State University will get a chance to collaborate with HFR and Project Runway alumni Kimberly Goldson to create the red carpet look for the McDonald’s 11th annual 365Black Awards hosted by Janell Snowden.
Fashion is a tough industry to establish yourself in but the possibilities are endless with talent, hard work and an ability to create opportunities for your self. Fashion is not yet identified as a major that leads to a “real” jobs and yet somehow the fashion industry is a multimillion dollar business.
TraVonne Walker Congrats on your ability to create opportunities and follow your passion. Cant wait to see your design at the McDonald’s 11th annual 365Black Awards show.
