The Cornell Fashion Collective enables designers to reimagine trends and incorporate them into their own designs. As a Level 4 designer, Cassidy Lewis, a senior from Planeview, NY, has participated in the CFC Fashion Show since her freshman year. For her, the biggest difference about this year is her ability to show a fully culminated collection.

She is excited to show her original ideas. Her inspiration originates from royalty, with the added twist of incorporating what a woman from this time would wear if the world wasn’t always a patriarchy. Her collection adds a feminist twist to a traditional theme. She is most excited for her final piece to walk the runway; she is keeping the details a surprise, but expect a big gown with a lot of movement.

Cassidy explained that there is a lot of anticipation leading up to the show, and she is most excited for the day of the show, when all of the designers’ hard work can come to fruition. She can’t wait to display her pieces, as well as the creativity and artistry of the other designers.
