In May, 20 local designers — including students from Uncommon Charter High School and Uncommon Collegiate Charter High School — were featured at the Brooklyn Public Library’s BKLYN Fashion Academy runway show. This year’s showcase paid homage to the Herero women of Namibia and their Victorian-style dresses. The designers also incorporated wearable technology into their designings, bringing together past and future.
We continue to be awed and inspired by the many talents of our students, and are excited to see the opportunities that are available to them to pursue their interests.
