Saugerties High School 2022 graduate Starla Bollé, who attended the Ulster BOCES Fashion Design & Merchandising (FDM) program, received the honor of having a photo of her fantasy — and nature-inspired outfit — featured on the back cover of the program’s culminating publication, known as a “lookbook.”The young fashion designer explained her work in this essay. “I used iridescent and metallic fabrics to give the collection a sense of otherworldliness.”

Bollé, an accomplished director, producer, writer, and actor who has had her movies featured at the Woodstock Film Festival, says that her participation in the FDM program as well as in the Woodstock Film Festival Youth Film Lab opened her eyes to a possible career path in the film costume design industry. “I kind of knew how to sew, but [in FDM] I learned technical sewing skills, pattern-making and blocking,”She explained. “And I learned a lot about trend cycles, and the process a garment goes through from creation to actual manufacturing to the showroom and [distribution].”

Her talent is evident in the fact that she was able to model her creations on the book’s back cover. Books are prime real estate. She even contributed a short story entitled “Into the Deep”The lookbook contains photos of her work. Bollé, who graduated from Saugerties High School early, will be attending Bard College this fall, where she plans to major in filmmaking. Bolle also hopes to share her passion of fashion design on campus by starting a sewing club.
