Ever wondered what it was like to make the Catwalk appear like a Cakewalk? The models, hair, makeup, lights, the intensity, the fast pace, it all sounds so glamorous and exciting. Yet, it’s no easy task pulling off Savannah College of Art and Design’s annual fashion show.
“Honestly, I can’t even describe to you how we handle it,” said backstage assistant, and model dresser, SCAD student, Storm Darris. “You’re backstage, there’s yelling, I’m helping one girl strap up her shoe, I’m fixing the hem of a dress on another girl, all at the same time, it’s intense! You’ve got 30 to 40 seconds to get that look on, get it right, or it’s not going to be seen and that was someone’s hard work.”
That’s just the madness on show day. It’s a huge collaborative effort of SCAD staff, faculty, students, as well as, many other creative minds putting together the show’s look. Once the student’s are chosen, which is a mere week before the show, things take off, full throttle. Now, how do you give a show a cohesive aesthetic when it is made up of 30 different designers with thirty different collections, especially when you’ve found out who they are only a week before the show?

They were sick of asking permission.
And even if they had, Matt Hebermehl and “Dr. Z.” James Zdaniewski aren’t the kind of artists to take “no” for an answer. So, on Halloween night—the opening night of the Savannah Film Festival—armed with a 3000 Lumen Projector and DVD player, Hebermehl and Zdaniewski perched atop the State Street parking garage, opposite Savannah College of Art and Design’s Jen Library. After scoping out different spots across the city, Hebermehl decided it was the perfect location for taking their artwork to the streets. They ran an extension cord from the garage’s electrical outlets, through the stairwell, to their equipment. “We [acted like we] were just messing around,” Hebermehl says. “Like we didn’t know what was going to happen.”

In Savannah to visit the Savannah College of Art and Design, reality television star Ty Pennington talks with South about his Georgia roots.
By all accounts, Ty Pennington is a Southern boy at heart. Best known as the high-energy host of ABC’s Extreme Makevoer: Home Edition, and TLC’s Trading Spaces before that, it only takes a couple minutes of conversation with him before it becomes hard to imagine this easy-to-smile guy fitting in with the Hollywood scene. Then again, Pennington’s job—or rather jobs—aren’t all glitz and glam. He makes a habit of working hard … for other people.
In addition to his work on his outrageously successful show, now in its sixth season, Pennington oversees his style line at Sears, is the author of two books, and has launched a magazine, Ty Pennington At Home. “Everything I do is a challenge,” says Pennington, “and I love
