Fashion Futures 2016, the student produced annual fashion show that took place at Royale in Boston in May, lives on in this feature story on Mount Ida’s best designers in the Boston Globe.

In addition to this online story and photo gallery, the three regional sections of the Boston Sunday Globe on July 10, 2016, ran the story, each highlighting students from the area.

In Globe West, Sarah Anzalone and Hannah Smith, both from Upton, spoke about their plans.

For Sarah it’s having multiple boutiques starting in Boston. “I want to put fashion and technology together,” says Sarah.

Hannah has set her career goals on costume design, theater, movie sets, music videos and stylists. In Globe South, Hannah Labonte, a Fashion Industry Marketing and Management major of Norton says “I hope to be behind the scenes of fashion shows, planning, styling and doing public relations.

Globe North featured Lowell’s Adrianna Colon who looks for comfort in fashion and who spoke about her collection inspired by a Puerto Rican folk tale, while Fatima Brooks, also from Lowell told the Globe, “Clothing is a little bit superficial, but it can boost self-confidence make you feel better about yourself.”

On Friday, June 3rd, 2016 the Annual Mount Ida College Athletic Association Golf Tournament was held at the Wayland Country Club.  The course was full with 136 golfers in attendance.  This tournament is a big draw for alumni, parents and friends of the College as the proceeds support the College’s Athletic program.


Participants received a Mount Ida College Golf Cooler bag that was filled with great goodies. Golfers teed off by 8 am playing in a scramble format. A fun and enjoyable day was had by all. As a result of the support of many friends of the College and the Athletics Department, we were able to raise more than $20,000 that will directly benefit our student athletes!   The Meal Sponsors for the tournament were Poli Mortgage Group, W.B. Mason and ARAMARK Dining.  After President Brown’s remarks the golfers enjoyed a barbeque lunch and the chance to bid on the silent auction and raffle items that included sought after items like a top of the line golf bag and driver, a stay on the cape, a Zachary Herivaux autographed NE Revolutionary Jersey, a “Gronk” football as well as sporting tickets, stays at local hotels and the opportunity to design your own shoes.
