CHEEKTOWAGA, NEW YORK (March 2, 2016) – Fashion design has opened doors for Lancaster High School student Ericka Schenk, an aspiring clothes designer.
Ericka will be exhibiting her designs along with 10 other students representing a total of eight local school districts at the “Limitless” fashion show. Students of the Erie 1 BOCES Fashion Design and Merchandising program will be modeling their creations on March 10 at Walden Galleria.
Ericka has been working on designs inspired by dance. Using knit and form-fitted fabrics, she hopes to create a clothing line that will use accessories to emphasize her designs.
“My favorite part of fashion is actually sewing the pieces together to form the final product,” stated Ericka. “I also enjoy fashion illustrating. With illustrating you are able to put your ideas on paper before you start to make it.”
