BHS Alumna, Sam Marchese (Class of 2016), came to visit the fashion class and also spoke with some marketing students regarding her experience after high school. Sam recently spent the summer in New York doing costume work for an independent film that will soon be released. She showed photographs of her experiences being on set and filming with the crew. Sam talked about how she was given a budget for clothing, purchasing many items for all of the actors in the movie -- relying on their self-taken measurements.
While Sam was in high school here at BHS, she was an extremely successful fashion design student, taking fashion for three years. She also worked part time at the costume room in Burlington, helping out with costumes for the Burlington musicals and plays. She works in the costume department at Providence College currently.
Currently Sam is a junior at Providence College, majoring in Marketing, with a specialized minor in costume design. Sam hopes to be a professional costumer in the future. Now with experience in the film industry, she has more options for her career.
I teach art at Burlington High School in Burlington, Massachusetts. My goals include teaching my students to live and thrive with 21st century learning skills while helping them to learn valuable creative artistic thinking and technical skill.
