Under billowing tents in Aviator Park, Moore College of Art & Design presented its annual end-of-year fashion show Saturday night with aplomb.

The collections showed depth and creativity and represented looks from decades past, with Laura Galindo’s Mad Men-esquetailored pieces and Caralyn Scudner’s children’s wear infused with 1960s flower prints. Scudner won the Charming Shoppes Inc. Award for the most salable collection and the Jannaman Award for best construction.

Great choice.

Lingerie continues to inspire students. Alexa O’Neill’s lacy pieces invoked the striptease and Emily George turned her nighties into sophisticated cover-ups. Other standouts were Emily Gleason’s vintage-chic apparel, and Deborah Artaza’s bold sportswear. Her liner notes said, “Every woman is a rebel and is usually in wild revolt against herself.”

Indeed.
