Fasion designers using body scanning machine – WKBW-TV
BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) – Fashion students at Buffalo State College a body scanning machine to help prepare them for the end of the semester fashion show.
“It takes measurements of bodies and creates a body cloud so we have virtual models in the classroom,” professor Lynn Boorady explained.
Students like Elizabeth Knights said the scanner and fashion show could launch her career.
“All of my garments are handmade. I worked really hard,” Knights said.
In the fashion wing at Buffalo State, the technology allows the students to fit their models to a T, creating an A-plus product.
“I didn’t do any manual measuring. it was quick and quite accurate,” Knights said.
They said the scanner also helps every day consumers fit their clothes like a glove.
“Instead of trying to fit into clothing that is mass produced for the general population, this helps it be made for the individual and that makes us feel better about our clothes and walk with a little more confidence,” Boorady said.
This weekend’s fashion show all the students have done but it will also raise scholarship money for future fashion designers. It will take place at the Campbell Student Union. There is one show at 3 p.m. and another at 8 p.m.
7 Eyewitness News Reporter Cierra Johnson will be hosting the show.
