Fairytale Fashion Show!

Our girls participated in a tutorial class hosted by Diana Eng. They learned about different areas where science and fashion meet, such as: inflatables, led lights, the drawdio, and more. They were also asked to contribute their own design concepts to Diana over the course of a month. This culminated in their attendance at Diana's spectacular Fashion Show showcasing all of her science meets fashion collection. The girls were invited to come to the show, be interviewed by various news outlets, and sit front and center to view the collection. They also hobnobbed with scientists invited to the show who graciously talked with our young women and explained their fields of research. An incredibly enriching experience and an overall fun evening! Thank you Diana!! {more photos in our albums: click on album in the left margin}
