This year’s Flying Solo: Thinking Outside of the Box Fashion Show sponsored by my high school was as amazing success! We had participation from many professional and emerging designers from Philadelphia to New York City including Pamela Ptak, Daniel Silverstein, Bianca-Rachelle, BlckBts and Agashi to name a few. But one of my favorites this year were the dresses provided to us from Emmy winning television star, #Carson Kressley! The easy to wear maxi dresses from his Love, Carson? Spring collection are perfection. Thanks Carson for your support. You rock!
I know I am a little late in posting this, but I have been a bit busy preparing for my schools 4th Annual #Flying Solo: Thinking Outside of the Box Fashion Show. I am really proud to have had one of my outfits featured on Channel 69/WFMZ and to have been one of the student designers selected as a spokesperson for this event. More photo’s from the event will be posted soon! WFMZ Interview
I normally try to stay away from controversy and politics, but as an owner of a children’s clothing company, I feel we have a responsibility to protect children and create clothing that promotes a positive self image.

Berks County fashion designer, Justin Orlick, 17, finds inspiration in Third World Travels
I have been fortunate and blessed to travel to many third world countries to provide volunteer support for sustainability projects and education programs. I have travelled to Thailand, Vietnam and Peru. I have also travelled throughout Europe including Italy and France. I am always amazed by the people and inspired by the colors, textures, textiles and art around me. Whenever possible I try to incorporate these elements into my designs.
I am so honored to be featured in this Reading Eagle article.
