Throughout the year, SCHS’ exhibition “Redesigning Fashion” has delved into the history of clothing and fashion in our community. We have examined how the past affects our present, and how fashion plays a role in creating identity. In her presentation Fatima will take us from the present to the future of fashion in the Capital Region.
