My name is Hanna Tischer, I am from Brazil, and my major is Fashion Business: Merchandising. I was an exchange student in NYC in 2014, I studied English and Fashion at the same time, and after that, I knew that working with fashion is what I want to do for the rest of my life! I plan on transferring to LIM College after graduating from GCC and get my bachelor’s degree in Visual Merchandising with a minor in Styling. Hopefully after graduating from LIM I’ll find a job in the US at a store where I can work with visual merchandising and grow in my career becoming the visual merchandising department manager, and also be able to be a fashion stylist.
In this year’s Fashion Show “Fashion is…” I am the Scene Coordinator for the scene Masquerade. My inspiration came from the musical “The Phantom of the Opera”. Last year, the fashion students from GCC went to NYC for some fashion related visits; since we were there, my friends and I decided to watch a Broadway musical and we opted for the Phantom of the Opera. In this musical there is a scene called Masquerade where they have a ball with people dressed in costumes and masks. My idea was evolved from that, because I have a passion for evening gowns I decided to mix both features: Evening gowns and Masks! I have been working with Charles Men’s Shop in Batavia and Katherine Patricia in Rochester to provide the tuxedos and dresses for my scene. I am beyond excited for it, specially after I choose the dresses which are different from the ordinary and bring a pinch of couture to the scene. I haven’t heard about a scene like that from any of the past Fashion Shows at GCC, so I am bringing a new idea and uniqueness to the stage with a classic and mysterious touch!
See how Art influences the fashion world and be amazed by the styles presented in this year’s Fashion Show “Fashion is…”. And to wrap up this article I just want to give you a quote and make you reflect and be ready for the GCC Fashion Show:
‘Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.’
