Students from Lynn University Summer Fashion Program visited the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History (MLFH)

Twelve students from the inaugural Summer Fashion Program at Lynn University of Boca Raton, Florida visited on June 25, 2011 the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History in Boynton Beach, Florida. The teenage high school graduates are enrolled in a two-week program where they are earning college credit.  The program was developed by Dr. Dandeo of Lynn U.

These emerging fashionistas toured all three galleries at MLFH and were abound with teenage-energy viewing the Barbie & Ken display, the Lilly Pulitzer history exhibition as well as the displays of fashions from the late 1800s to 1960s.  MLFH's talented student volunteer Skyler Carosella helped with guiding the students through the exhibits and she had fun highlighting the two murals she created. And, the Lynn U. students really enjoyed the showcase of the the Barbie apparel and costume designs created by students from the Fashion Academy at Santaluces High School of Lantana, Florida.

Next, the Lynn fashion campers are off to New York to visit the popular Steve McQueen exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The late Boris & Edith Rueger were longtime supporters of both MLFH and Lynn University.  The Ruegers would be elated about Lynn's recent experience at MLFH.

MLFH is located inside the Boynton Beach Mall in Boynton Beach, Florida at 801 N. Congress Avenue, Suite 483, Boynton Beach, FL (inside Mall in North Wing).  561-243-2662. Visit
