September Session: UnFashion
What are the intersections of everyday apparel and outrageous costume? What do our personal styles and methods of adornment express about ourselves and the world around us? Explore diverse fashion statements and costumes from across time and cultures and take an up-close look at textiles for inspiration. Experiment with paper, thread, fabric, sewing and weaving techniques to design new, wearable expressions that explore the ordinary and outlandish.
