  • Stitching Class Together

    Stitching together a semester’s worth of fashion when you have not spent a semester’s worth of time in school is difficult. Typically, at this time of the year the students in the Fashion Marketplace class at Somers High School would be putting finishing touches on their creations for the annual fashion show. But like so many traditions, this one had to be modified. “Some of these students were in the Fashion Fundamentals class last year when we shut down for COVID, so they didn’t have a lot of sewing experience to begin with,” says teacher Chrissy Brooks. “It would be asking a lot of them to create outfits now, so we are making the most of it.” The students who are not yet ready to design and sew articles of clothing are instead working on a beauty and fashion blog, www.SomersStyle.blog.
