What is “fast fashion” and why won’t our clothes today survive like they did for previous generations? Learn about sustainable fashion and how historical fashion can inform sustainable initiatives today. Local fashion leaders will discuss efforts to reimagine a more regional textile economy and the global problems with fast fashion culture.
Presented by Dr. Victoria Rose Pass, a specialist in visual culture, particularly in areas of design and fashion, who recently co-edited Design History Beyond the Canon with Jennifer Kauffman-Buhler and Christopher Wilson. This program is part of the Spectrum of Fashion Symposium, a free virtual series of events October 19-21, hosted by the Maryland Center for History and Culture.
