Fashion Without Limits:
‘Fashion Without Limits’ represents a collaboration between Syracuse’s Fashion Design Program and iconic supermodel and entrepreneur, Emme ’85, to launch a design initiative that promotes the creation of size 12+ designs in the junior year through a special competition. ‘Fashion Without Limits’ (FWL) was created in direct response to a need for increased availability of sizes 12+ within the fashion industry.

Inspiration: “My senior collection is inspired by the building in Barcelona, Spain, specifically by the architect Antoni Gaudi. The pieces reflect the organic, feel, curves, and colors of Gaudi’s work. I wanted to express the interesting Visual appeal of his work in my collection.”
Inspiration: Not Given
Inspiration: “My senior collection explores the nature of water. Water is perceived as a calm and gentle figure, which allows it to be incorporated in people’s everyday life as well as in nature. In my collection, I’m aiming to present the figure, shape and texture of water that best represent their calmness.”
Inspiration: My collection is based on the idea of brokenness and constriction, and furthermore the idea that beauty can be found even through these.
Inspiration: “My senior collection reflects authenticity, the freedom to ‘step out of the box’ and be bold. I explored the many facets of mens fashion, utilizing those styles to design an original and unique women line. These styles are meant to portray a sense of individuality.”
Inspiration: “My collection is inspired by black and white nature scenes of mountains, trees and fog reflected over water. I was drawn to these nature landscapes for their eerie and mysterious mood. These images are the main focus of my designs after they were manipulated and reflected to be made into prints.”
Inspiration: “Paper artist Richard Sweeney has been the main source of inspiration for my collection. I channeled his traditional folding and manipulation techniques to create architectural designs that challenge the conventional idea of clothing. My goal is to create innovative, sculptural forms that integrate seamlessly with the body.”
Inspiration: “My collection is all about modern, future and geometric.”
