As a member of the Cornell Fashion Collective since her freshman year, Margaux Neborak revels in the creative freedom offered to her as a senior level 4 designer. Her love for fashion began in her high school design class – a love that has led her from sewing tote bags to designing luxe gowns. In her final collection for CFC, Neborak’s several years of experience will culminate in a truly sensational demonstration of her talent.

Over the last few years, Neborak’s time at Cornell has been supplemented with various internships that have shaped her signature style and passion for couture. Her most recent internship with Hayley Paige in New York this past summer catapulted her into the world of bridal design. Inspired by designers Monique Lhuillier and Vera Wang, Neborak sought to create her own line of bridalwear.

Neborak’s collection will feature eight gowns that can be best described as nouveau niche: a modern take on the traditional wedding gown. Her central inspiration comes from the music genre of EDM, which emphasizes electric euphoria juxtaposed with organic repetition. Neborak hopes her designs will evoke the vibe of EDM through her use of geometry whilst still maintaining the ethereality of traditional bridal silhouettes.

Neborak’s advice for young designers is to always take advantage of opportunities to be unconditionally creative. She appreciates the platform the Cornell Fashion Collective has given her to define her personal goals and interests and looks forward to sharing her final bridal collection at the show!
