The Newark School of Fashion & Design (NSFD) is proud to announce, through their continued partnership with Macy’s, a generous donation of $10,000 for a second consecutive year! NSFD students were able to learn about denim creation and curation at the Blueprint Denim (BPD) Washhouse, located in Jersey City, New Jersey, through grant funding provided by Macy’s. The BPD Washhouse experts worked to teach NSFD students all about the fashion industry as well as a variety of techniques used to produce unique clothing styles such as laser printing onto all fabric types, fabric manipulation, fabric washes to produce different textile outcomes, denim foiling, wet & dry processing, and much more.
Similar to last year, NSFD students were also given the opportunity to work at the (BPD) Washhouse for four weeks with professionals and experts who specialize in denim wear and are curating their own denim pieces as well. Newark School of Fashion & Design looks forward to the possibility of student internships at Macy’s and The Blueprint Washhouse based on the ongoing success of this current triangular partnership.
