Carroll County Career and Technology Center’s ‘Fashion Avenue’ showcases New York City-inspired designs

Velvet, lace, satin and sequins. Block colors, gingham, tweed and stripes.

A variety of colors and textures were highlighted before a graffitied brick facade as 14 Carroll County teens showed off their handmade clothing Friday night for “Fashion Avenue,” the Carroll County Career and Technology Center’s 2019 fashion show.

The show is a culmination of a year’s worth of work, during which students in the fashion and textiles program were tasked with designing 18 ensembles, the central theme of them all being New York City fashion.

“It is based kind of around New York — studio apartment, street style,” said 18-year-old Emma Farley, a senior in the program. “New York is the closest fashion metropolis to us, and a lot of kids around here take inspiration from New York.”
