This is crazy cool! A high school senior at Copley-Fairlawn High School in Northeast Ohio took the assignment from her teacher and went above and beyond. Alyssa Hertz was instructed by her teacher to create and wedding dress from styrofoam and she not only designed the dress but she executed it so well that it has now gone viral! Local news pick it up the story but so did People and the Today Show. We had a chance to chat with Alyssa about her dress and the process she went through to design it. We even asked her how she got it to go viral!

Alyssa will be attending Kent State University next year and majoring in Fashion Design. We think she'll have a great story for the first day of classes!
