michelle

On Wednesday, October 8th BDS Students visited the First Lady, Michelle Obama at the White House. The students’ participated in the first-ever fashion education workshop to help further the First Lady’s Reach Higher Initiative. The White House says its goal was to provide a forum for the world’s leading fashion professionals to share their personal stories and insight with promising young people who intend to pursue higher education. The First Lady spoke to the students about the importance of staying in school and getting an education for a successful career.

BDS students designed dresses for the First Lady which they presented to her at the White House.

Designing Baltimore, One Student at a Time


Baltimore Design School is a public middle-high school that focuses on design.  In the high school, students will learn the basics of Fashion Design, Architecture, and Graphic Design. In the fall of 2011 the school started with grades 6 and 7, adding a new 6th grade each year, so that by 2016, the school will be a full 6-12 school

The Baltimore Design School believes that all students, with good instruction and practice, can learn art and design skills and achieve high standards in their academic programs. We value student interests in drawing, making things, fashion ideas, creative problem-solving, three-dimensional abilities, planning and building, and communicating visually through graphics. We love students who see problems that need new solutions, who envision possibilities, and imagine a better world.

We believe our graduates will be leading designers and architects of the future who see design as a way of thinking, problem-solving, and living a productive and rewarding life.
