Gold Thimble Fashion Show – Spring 2015

It is always one of the most special events of each semester. The Gold Thimble Fashion Show is a chance for LATTC’s graduating fashion students to compete in seven design categories, and to show off some of the creativity and hard work that comes with being a student in this program. The added excitement for this semester’s sold-out show was the presence of Kanye West, who has visited some fashion classes at Trade Tech. He delivered some remarks encouraging students to make their voices heard.

But of course the real stars are the students and their designs. Just another fantastic example of how talented our students can be. Here are photos from the show. Below is a photo of Fashion faculty Tiffany Jackson and Carlos Alcala, who prepare the Gold Thimble students. And of course, toward the bottom we have a rare photo of chair Carole Anderson celebrating with students on the runway. Then a list of this year’s winners…and congratulations to them all!
