Unpicking Fashion: Old World, New World, Weird World
Please join us for a conversation between Academy of Art UniversityPresident Elisa Stephens, School of Fashion Executive Director Gladys Perint Palmer, and School of Fashion Director Simon Ungless – as they discuss the origin and mission of the university and the rise and growth of School of Fashion.
Gladys Perint Palmer will also take us on a visual journey through the history of fashion inspired by her travels to London, Paris, Istanbul, and other parts of Turkey – where East truly meets West. She will delve into the global nature of fashion and the ways in which designers re-interpret concepts rooted in Old World ideas. Additionally, she will discuss her unusual involvement in a new fashion film, We’ll Take Manhattan, as well as show highlights from the Academy of Art University Fall ’12 Fashion Show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
All Academy of Art University students and faculty are encouraged to attend!
