The reprise concluded with a presentation of the Silver Needle Icon Award by Marist College President, Dennis J. Murray, and Fashion Program Director, Radley Cramer, who both showcased their own senses of humor by joining Johnson in a split right on the catwalk, much to the delight of the crowd.
Following the show, guests enjoyed a reception of hors d’oeuvres and Champage across the plaza at Avery Fisher Hall, where models presented designs from the 2013 Silver Needle Runway collections. The college also used the reception as an opportunity to launch the FOLD, best described as a virtual community in which fashion-minded students and professionals alike can partake in free, online courses, learn about trend forecasting and market research, keep up with the collegee’s fashion initiatives, and more.
