Rebecca Bernstein won the Frank Agostino Award for Design, Construction & Workmanship at Drexel University’s Westphal College of Media Arts & Design fashion show. The event took place June 2 at Urban Outfitters Corporate Headquarters located in the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Rebecca’s winning garment is part of her senior collection that combines elements of skiwear and science fiction. She utilized nylon fabrics, rib knits and stitching patterns to make her futuristic design functional to wear. Frank’s prize was only one of several that she received, which included the Evelyn Netsky Award for best in show. Congratulations, Rebecca.
