Local Students Earn Academic Honors

Javier Participates in Runway Shows

Sheri Javier, a Lasell University student from East Boston, participated in the institution’s annual RUNWAY shows last month.

Javier was a designer who presented original work at the RUNWAY undergraduate show.

The annual fashion shows featured work from 89 student designers and more than 150 models and production staff members. An undergraduate show on Friday, April 28, showcased work across 11 categories, including sweater knits, corsetry, athleisure, and non-textiles. On Saturday, senior designers presented full collections.

Fashion merchandising and management students Jacqueline Minasian ‘23 and Catherine King ‘23 co-directed the shows, while Noelle Engrassia ‘23 served as production assistant. With guidance from Kristin Kinsky, assistant professor of fashion and RUNWAY faculty director, the student leaders managed the entire process: sourcing, training, and coordinating models; managing production staff; coordinating backstage and front-of-house needs; overseeing promotions and media; and working with designers to make their visions a reality.

The senior class show on Saturday, April 29, highlighted collections from 22 fashion design and production students from the fashion design and production Class of 2023. Each collection included seven looks developed over the course of the year with accompanying music and video content to convey the designer’s vision.

The RUNWAY shows closed out Lasell’s end -of-year academic festivities, including the Connected Learning Symposium on Thursday, April 27.
