CHEEKTOWAGA, NEW YORK (March 2, 2016) – Fashion design has opened doors for Kenmore West student Maddy Lewandowski, an aspiring clothes designer.


Maddy 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.


Maddy has been working on lace designs. She claims that lace can make nearly any outfit look ten-times better than it already does.


“I’ve always loved fashion, it’s just in my blood; it’s what I’m made to do,” Maddy stated.


Through classes offered at Erie 1 BOCES, Maddy has learned how to design her creations using techniques that will help her dream of launching her own clothing line after college become a reality. Maddy hopes that, in the future, she will be able to offer trending fashion styles with a lace approach – a niche market that she believes often gets overlooked.


“My plans after high school are to go to college at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and strive for a career in apparel design,” stated Maddy.


“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.
