Event at Stitching Maryland Together

Students in The Mill, Stevenson School of Design's interdisciplinary marketing class, attended the launch party of "Stitching Maryland Together," a movement that "binds the fashion community with a single thread. Individual creators and organizations take center stage in an inclusive effort to engage the past, present, and future of a dynamic industry. This movement exists to give fashion the platform it needs to inspire ongoing involvement," according to www.stitchingmdtogether.org/whoweare. With a sponsorship grant from PNC Bank, the students in the class are working on ways of making the fashion industry more inclusive and collaborative.

Stitching Maryland Together's main event on Saturday, May 4, will be held at Ram's Head Live in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Tickets are on sale here. (Photos from Leeanne Bell McManus)
