Amazing Alumnae Stories:

“Sr. Aloyse’s couture class turned my interest in fashion into a passion. Showing me the elements that underpin a truly successful dress—fit, function and details—she taught me my craft from the inside out. That’s the foundation I built my career on.”

“Mount Mary gave me a strong foundation of the fundamentals of design and patternmaking. While I no longer work directly on product, my background helps me to facilitate discussions regarding design, construction, costing and apparel and accessories production with my teams. Throughout my classes at Mount Mary, we often were tasked with presenting our ideas, which has been invaluable in helping me reach my career goals.”

Michelle Polson
Fashion Design, ’01
Lead Product Development Manager of Jewelry, Accessories and Shoes Team, Target Corporation

“Mount Mary helped shaped my path by instilling in me the importance of living with intention … Everyone’s path is different and you have to trust your own journey. That path isn’t always smooth. It doesn’t always make sense and most of the time, it doesn’t seem fair. But I’ve found if you ignore the noise, everything always works out and nothing is ever as bad as it seems, something I heard a lot at Mount Mary. The growth I’ve experienced at times, redefined me … and became lessons that validated my core.”
