Alumna Stands Out At Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Following her successful showing at NYC’s Mercedes-Benz fashion week in February, DNAinfo.com profiled 24-year-old Chelsey Carter (BFA 2009), SAIC alumna and creator of Alex Carter Fashion. Carter’s Fall 2013 collection features “dresses and shirts with empty space where the collar would be,” a look described as the “anti-Peter Pan collar.” This “positive-negative collar conveys a kind of whimsy that captures her line’s style,” the article states, and has grabbed the attention of New York boutiques eager to pick up the line. Since graduating SAIC in 2009, Carter has produced four collections and participated in 11 fashion shows. She plans to present at London’s Fashion Week in 2014.
