Northeastern alumna Valentina Delfino, that is.
For years, Delfino, BA’10, a native of Venezuela, had longed to be the answer to fashion’s most important question. The dream came true when Pyle, of Best Picture The Artist, chose Delfino’s sustainable dress design over hundreds of others in the fourth annual international Red Carpet Green Dress competition.
When the young design star entered the competition, she didn’t know who she was designing for, but that didn’t matter: The dress, with pleats designed to create an elegant silhouette, was created to look great on any woman, she says. And it made more than a fashion statement.
In December, Delfino will graduate with a master’s in fashion from Miami International University of Art and Design, on her way, she hopes, to Madison Avenue.
