Channel 12, Maple Grove: Senior Wish Unites Former Fashion Designer with Runway

Carol has a passion for fashion. It all started with paper dolls at age 5. She would play with the neighbor kids and while their interest in clothes and fashion may have faded, hers stuck. By 13 she knew she wanted to be a fashion designer. While most mothers wouldn’t be happy to hear that their daughter wanted to go and study pattern design in New York, Carol’s mother was quite the understanding woman (remember this was the 1930’s)! She helped Carol get information on schools by typing letters to a dozen or so schools asking for information. Carol’s mom helped her decide on a the Traphagen School of Fashion Design in New York City. After going to Traphagen School of Fashion Design for 3 years she had to leave because of the war, but that didn’t stop Carol! She pursued her passion and enjoyed a long career as a fashion designer.

Watch the video of Carol’s wish in action!
