This year's guest speaker for the Annual Student Fashion Show: Modern Masquerade will be Alyson Carosello, '10. While at Cazenovia, Carosello was a Fashion Design major and was greatly involved in the fashion department. She was the fashion show director during the 2009 show, "The Seven Deadly Sins."

Carosello has been working in the accessories industry for over 6 years and is currently working at Roma Industries in New York City. The New York Fashion Tour class, a class that visits industry professionals in NYC, often visits Roma Industries where Carosello speaks to the class about her job and the industry. Carosello is excited and nervous to speak at the show. She has a lot of industry knowledge and information to relay to the students. 

Carosello also has her own bridal line, Alyson Nicole, which was created in 2009. Alyson Nicole offers a made-to-order line of accessories available for purchase at, but Carosello says the best thing about her bridal business is the bespoke designs. In 2016, Carosello won the Wedding Wire's Couple's Choice award for the NYC area making her one of the top 5% vendors for "Dress & Attire" and "Jewelry" categories.
