Alexander McQueen, Spring '10 Ads!

This advertisement is simply amazing!! Model Raquel Zimmermann, shot by Nick Knight, is somewhere underneath it all in those staple shoes that Lady GaGa wears in her 'Bad Romance' video.


I'm Alyssa Carnazza. I'm 21 and currently a senior at Fordham University. I started designing when I was in high school in New Jersey. I couldn't find a junior prom dress that I was in love with, so I explained to my mother exactly what I wanted it to look like, and POOF, a dress appeared. Since then my mom has taught me everything I know about sewing, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

For the past three years, I have dedicated much of my time at Fordham to a very special club called "Fashion for Philanthropy", in which we help to raise money for the "Make-A-Wish Foundation." Every spring semester we hold a fashion show completely ran by the club members and Fordham Students, where we try to raise enough money for the "Make-A-Wish Foundation" to make one child's wish come true. This year our theme is "Once Upon A Runway" inspired by fairytales. I have chosen to take a risk, designing and sewing a 15 piece collection inspired by VILLAINS.

I will be posting pics and videos of my journey to the fashion show to update you all on how the process is coming along. I will also be running around Fordham with my Nikon taking pictures of any of you little fashionista's on campus, so dress to impress and maybe I'll post about you ;]
