Normandy Senior Takes 1st Place in Lindenwood Fashion Show

ST. CHARLES, MO -- Talijah Williams is the first place winner at the recent Lindenwood University annual high school fashion show. Her three-piece outfit earned her the honors, as it can be worn both day and night. This is Williams’ second year as a designer in the Lindenwood high school fashion show where she competed against other high school designers from around the area.

     The Normandy High School Fashion Design program has earned honors in regional and statewide competitions in recent years including Gold and Silver Awards in the state Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Students Taking Action with Recognition (STAR) competitions. Desiree Green, Fashion Design teacher at Normandy High School, says Williams has a talent of recycling old garments and making them into new, wearable and exiting outfits.

     “Talijah exemplifies the qualities of an up-and-coming fashion designer,” Green said. “I’m proud to be her mentor.”
