Two Brookdale Community College alumni will display their fashion and style in the 2019 Atlantic City Fashion Show taking place February 13-16 at The Showboat Hotel.

Cynthia Matthews-Duran won the student showcase completion last year. The Wall Township native earned her associate’s degree in fashion merchandising from Brookdale in 2018 and is now pursuing an associate’s degree in design from FIT.

“My designs this year will be even more refined, wearable and visually interesting,” said Matthews-Duran.

Melanie Wexler earned her associate’s degree in fashion merchandising last year. The Howell resident originally came to Brookdale to study nursing but later discovered her passion for fashion.

“Coming back to Brookdale to get my degree in fashion merchandising was the best decision I ever made,” said Wexler.

Her entries in this year’s show include dresses, from bridal to wedding and event attire.
