Workshop: ChiDM Loves Fashion!
Thursday February 5th 2015, 6:00 pm8:00 pm

Join ChiDM for a behind-the-scenes tour of Columbia College Chicago‘s Fashion Study Collection.

Inspired by Deborah Sussman’s work on the visual identities for three Californian retailers – Joseph Magnin, Zody’s and Standard Shoes – we will view the modern Californian fashions purchased in these stores like these. Our visit will consist of a tour of the Collection’s vault, an informal presentation on modernity in fashion, and an examination of garments or accessories that typify mid-century and California design.
