[MUSIC PLAYING] JULIANA DAROZA: The end goal, I really hope to be working in an industry that not only dresses people, but also supports people in different ways, especially now with so many different movements with ethical fashion and sustainability. I'm hoping that by the time I make it out into this industry, that I can be a part of that and help that in a way that's better than what we have right now.
LAUREN FORSTENHAUSLER: The theme for level two is golden age of Hollywood. So what I did with my two looks is that I kind of like contrasted it with the Great Depression, because that was happening at the same time. In that time period, the people they went to the movies to escape, they went to the movies to forget reality and live in the movie world for just a little bit.
STEPHANIE LAGINESTRA: So I'm a third level designer, so I get to create my own collection. My collection is titled "Elements," and it's about how designers use shape and structure to create effects in clothing.
So it's a dress. It has these big curves on her hips that stand out. And they sort of mix between a really structured shape, but like it looks more gentle as opposed to geometric, but it stands like a geometric shape would.
I have this piece, which has sort of a mix between a geometric and also a more flowing shape to it. So the top is really structured, but when it walks and as it flows, it doesn't have that same effect.
MARGAUX NEBORAK: The inspiration for my bridal collection is EDM, which is electronic dance music. The music will start ethereal and then it will kind of go into more this heavy beat that really reminds you of EDM, and more of the EDM geometric gowns will be shown. And then from there, I'll kind of go back to this ethereal. Using these aspects of kind of iridescent colors, adding them into the collection, and hopefully, as the light hits them onstage, they will kind of give off the sheen and the different colors as you see at an EDM concert.
