"A Genre of Her Own: Mirroring Picasso"
New Runway! New Staging!
Join us for an evening of glamour, fashion and style as our seniors reveal their distinctive collections energized by individual journeys of experimentation and change. The evening will also include an athleisure group entitled "Rapid Response," featuring collections for men and women created by juniors, the always-charming sophomore segment with tween fashions inspired by a 'wild garden' and the dazzling eveningwear finale, which always delights. In tribute to The Barnes Foundation’s exhibition Picasso: The Great War, Experimentation and Change, Fashion Design seniors have researched Picasso's work to create these gowns mirroring his art.
