Advice to New Designers: Bring Something New Because Our Closets Are Already Full.
Nov 11- At Moore College of Design and Fame Appeal was able to meet:
Alexandra De Yonge – Fashion Designer at Diane Von Furstenberg Studio and Moore Alum
Kristin Haskins- Simms – Creator of Strangefruit and a Project Runway Season 8 contestant!
Craig Arthur von Schroeder – Founding designer of Commonwealth Proper, a clothing company completely made in USA and based out of Philly!
Auralis Herrero Lugo – Founding designer of Auralis Inc, an ecologically friendly fashion line and Moore Alum

Philadelphia’s best dressed and cutting edge designers attended the Business of Fashion event hosted by the Moore College of Art and Design. The event is just one of many included in Moore’s NET Nights program which provides graduates of art and design colleges and universities the opportunity to network with local designers, business owners, industry insiders, and other arts professionals.

In addition to showing pieces from their spring collections, the designers offered advice on what it takes to release a clothing line. While the designers all had their own unique paths to where they are now, they all agreed that the business of fashion is not always glamorous. When celebrities wear their designs it’s a bonus but nothing can make up for research, knowing the customer, and persistence.
