As students from Slim’s Fashion & Arts School prepare for their exhibit in October, To be You looks back a year ago when young talents of the country’s premier fashion school were asked to produce garments out of seemingly incompatible materials.
Aptly titled “Contrast,” the exhibit showcased an innovative and eye-catching play of colors, shapes and textures.
“Students from secondary and advanced classes—usually from pattern making, draping and men’s tailoring—go through a mandatory process that involves the submission of a sketch, fabric swatches and a prototype of the final garment,” explains Slim’s director Mark Higgins.
The goal is to teach students how to create fashion based on a given theme or brief.
