Fashion Merchandising students from the Eastern Long Island Academy of Applied Technology, Bellport campus, found their opportunity to show their love for their craft in a window in downtown Sayville. The students were told to put their skills to work designing a window display at Ooh La La on Main Street in Sayville. Fashion Merchandising is a class taught at the Eastern Long Island Academy of Applied Technology, which is the Career and Technical Education Program at Eastern Suffolk BOCES.


The students were tasked to create a window display with a Pride theme.  The students created a rainbow curtain display using crepe paper and streamers. They covered the bottom of the window with rainbow-colored paper flowers. To finish off the display, they painted “Love is Love is Love” in white paint on the window itself.

“Part of fashion is not just making beautiful clothes, but showing them in a way that people can admire them,” said Fashion Merchandising Teacher Joyce Sims. “This helps our students learn how to set up a display that works for you – it draws someone in by being beautiful, but also current.”
