Here are some of the designs from the 2013 Senior Collection. The show,which is held annually at Syracuse University, kicked-off our fashion coverage last week.

Last night we covered the Block Party Concert at the Dome last night and saw R&B singer Trey Songz set the standard. He performed for nearly and hour and had the crowd at the point of eruption.
West Coast Hip Hop Collective Drop City Yacht Club (formerly The Freshmen) was a good appetizer.
By the time headliner Ke$ha hit the stage (after a lengthy delay) things weren’t just the same. We left after the intro and first song, mind but found this review, written on Syracuse Online, to be confirmation.
To their credit, Ke$ha fans didn’t lack enthusiasm.
A rejuvenated Paul Robeson Performing Arts Company (PRPAC) took theater back to its roots when they collaborated with high school students and parents in the area to produce “Cabaret & Conversation” at The Community Folk Art Gallery (CFAC) last week. The show was developed with PRPAC following a controversy at CNS High when the school cast an all-white ensemble for “The Wiz.”
In the clip above, sickness Dionna Owens and Justin Tanksle intepret a duet by Rhianna and Mikkey Ekko.
Count Basie Orchestra Alto Sax player Marshall McDonald visited SU for a student workshop and concert with the Mortin Schiff Jazz Ensemble last week. During a break in selections he talked about his progression from Clarinet to Sax, and how legends such as Danny Turner and Marshall Royal offered up a unique flavor that helped create a signature Basie Orchestra sound. The conductor for the concert was SU professor Joe Riposo.
