Not a normal high school year for Wethersfield senior Chelsea Pinchera, 17. Pinchera took a fashion design class at Wethersfield High school and fell in love with the art. She came to the conclusion that she wanted to pursue it as a career and apply to colleges offering a fashion degree. Fashion Institute of Technology located in New York City is her top school and is currently waiting to hear on her application status.
As senior year goes on she has to not only apply for colleges but in her case also submit a portfolio for her art schools . “It's very stressful. I have to make and put together my portfolio but also apply for colleges and keep my grades up.” The fashion enthusiast would love to one day be in New York City she says “hopefully this hard work now will pay off one day.”
For her portfolio she has a variety of different drawings and just completed a very professional oversized coat and a pair of white high waisted shorts with floral patches on them. Pictures of Pinchera’s work will follow.
