LDS Fashion Designer was invited to participate in New York Fashion Week with modest designs

​Aleksandra Salo had a dilemma: She couldn’t find anything to wear.

Salo, originally from a small town in Russia, had a very specific style in her mind, and none of the clothing stores in Utah, or anywhere else, fit that style. She decided to ask a seamstress friend of hers to make a dress for her.

When Salo described the type of dress she wanted, her friend suggested she take a pattern-making class at Brigham Young University, where Salo was a student, so she could bring her ideas to life.

After taking that one class at BYU, Salo would never need to ask a friend to make her clothing again.

Salo was recently invited to participate in New York Fashion Week this September, which takes place in February and September of each year and features international fashion collections.

Salo has previously participated in Christian Fashion Week in Florida, as well as Utah Fashion Week.
