Hackettstown, N.J.  – Two Centenary Fashion Design students, Sarah Greenstone and Kayla Woehr, are displaying their garment collection and accompanying portfolios at Chester Public Library for the month of February. Two Centenary graduates, Sandra Church and Sonya Bayramoglu, are as well. 

Greenstone and Woehr’s work is from their mini-collection that they created for their Design Studio class.  Greenstone’s work is entitled Fabula de Puella and Woehr’s collection is called Modern Derby.  Church is a 2012 graduate and is displaying her creation that she completed as an assignment for her Design Studio IV: Portfolio Development class called Rainbow Sprinkles. Bayramoglu, who graduated in 2013, is displaying All Things Man, which also was completed for that class.

Both Church and Bayramoglu work in the fashion industry.  Both work at AD Sutton in New York City in their Baby Division.  Church is a Gift Designer and Bayramoglu is a
Baby Bag Designer.

“I am so pleased that patrons of the Chester Library will have the opportunity to see the work of these talented students from now until the end of the month,” says Dr. Mia Whang, Assistant Professor of Fashion at Centenary College.  “Their works are just examples of the many professional creations that come from our students.”

In addition to illustrations, each portfolio includes theme/concept and fabric pages, specification sheets and technical drawings. 

Fashion Design students at Centenary College are prepared for careers as clothing and accessory designers, product developers, technical designers, fashion illustrators, patternmakers and sample room supervisors.  They examine and research trends, evaluate consumer markets and buying behavior, and use technology to conceptualize, design and construct apparel products.  The program offers training in apparel construction, sketching/illustration, pattern making, draping and portfolio development.  All design students create a fashion collection, which is presented in a runway show during their senior year.

Founded in 1867 by the Newark Conference of the United Methodist Church, Centenary College’s academic program integrates a solid liberal arts foundation with a strong career orientation. This mix is designed to provide an educational experience that prepares students to succeed in the increasingly global and interdependent world.

Centenary College’s main campus is located in Hackettstown, N.J., with its equestrian facility in Washington Township (Morris County).  The Centenary College School of Professional Studies offers degree programs in two locations: Hackettstown, Parsippany and Edison, and at corporate sites throughout New Jersey.
