CHEEKTOWAGA, NEW YORK (March 2, 2016) – Fashion design has opened doors for Hamburg student Hunter LaCrosse, an aspiring clothes designer.


Hunter 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.


Hunter has been working on novel designs inspired by traditional Chinese garments. Motivated by her experiences at festivals in China, Hunter’ s modern designs reflect Chinese tradition.


“Actually, the reason for being interested in fashion was because I realized I was drawing clothing more in my illustrations … I wanted to have hands-on experience with fabrics so I could use them for reference,” Hunter said.


Through classes offered at Erie 1 BOCES, Hunter stated she has learned more about the fashion industry and “became more comfortable with myself along the way.” Hunter hopes that, in the future, she will be able to offer fashion illustrations and clothing designs that will revolutionize the industry.


“I hope to find a job straight after high school, but further along I hope to be a self-publishing artist who can live off of my artwork,” stated Hunter, on her goals.


“Limitless” will be held on March 10, 2016 at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Lord & Taylor Court, presented by the Walden Galleria and Lord & Taylor. The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
