Fashion industry provides creative outlet for Hamburg student

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.

"The American Side" Made in Buffalo!

"The American Side" Made in Buffalo!

This is a classic film noir private detective story with participants fighting over plans of a Nikola Tesla invention that was separated by Tesla into two parts so it could not be built without having both halves. Scenes were shot at the Grain Elevators, many locations around Buffalo, on the Steam Engines at the Col. Ward, Niagara Falls and even the Lockport Locks and caves. They are working on releasing the film in the Spring. It's a fun, tense detective movie definitely worth seeing especially if your from WNY. This movie is a great boost for Buffalo...
