DATA Di at El Paseo Fashion Week 2010

The 2010 El Paseo Fashion Week hosted by Palm Springs Life Magazine provided DATA students with some amazing professional learning experiences.

Di photographers Melissa Flores, Markie Hackwith, and Jessica Hernandez all shot alongside professionals at the end of the cat walk.

Di graphic designer Victor Gonzalez worked directly with Palm Springs Life Magazine's fashion editor Susan Stein and David Vogel to create graphics for the El Paseo stores participating in the opening nite.  His imagery was blasted onto the giant screens on each side of the stage while models strutted in designer garb.

Other DATA students were involved in shooting video to document the event.

A very special thank you to PSUSD Visual & Performing Arts Coordinator Louisa Castrodale, Palm Springs Life Magazine Fashion Editor Susan Stein, and David Vogel for providing this opportunity for all DATA students!
