New Design NewsPaper Fashion Show 2011
Edited by 9th Grader Jonathan Ramos
"After it was filmed I started to put the whole thing together from the sketches to the making of the clothing to the the fashion show itself. This was my first time using iMovie and my first time video editing. It took a long time! I'm excited because I really want to become a filmmaker."

CB2's Eastside Store Opening Bash

APER and CB2 had a little get together last night to celebrate the opening of the CB2 Eastside Manhattan store on 3rd Ave and 58th street. The party also marked CB2's partnership with New Design High School, which gives students the chance to work with street photographers like Backyard Bill, Eddie Newton and Street Peeper. Their pictures were on display at the store launch party and available for sale via silent auction with proceeds benefiting the high school. Check out our shots from last night, which included attendees Maggie Gyllenhaal, Darryl "D.M.C." Matthews McDaniels of a little group called Run-D.M.C. and PAPER fav, artist Kalup Linzy.
