Anti-Prom Designs



In case you missed the runway fashion show at this year's Anti-Prom, the fabulous designs of the students from the High School of Fashion Industries are on view in the Fifth Avenue window of the Mid-Manhattan Library. And to see the story behind the designs check out our online videos of Design NYPL 2011The teen-selected theme for the 2011 Anti-Prom was "Super Prom." Teen designers explored the meaning of super, from caped crusaders to spandex-wearing super villains and everything in between during their visits to the Library for the Performing Arts, the Art and Architecture Collection, and the Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection. After visiting Mood Fabrics to purchase the materials for their garments, the students received constructive feedback from Simon Doonan, Creative Ambassador for Barneys, on their preliminary designs. Their creations will be on display at the Mid-Manhattan Library though the end of June.
