From the Runway to the Rack
A Survey of Modern Fashion Design
Wednesdays, June 5–26, 7:00–10:00 pm
About the Program
Click through any fashion retailer’s website and it’s loud and clear: Runway shows, haute couture, and red-carpet style have a trickle-down effect on what’s being sold to the public.
Through a series of lectures, students will explore how designers influence the way everyday people dress, consider the roles of celebrities, and examine collaborations between designers and retailers. Finally, students will conceptualize a mass-market line based on what’s trending on the runway. Offered in partnership with Otis College Extension, this class includes a tour of the exhibition Fearless Fashion: Rudi Gernreich.
