The 2014 Fall Draping II class will be participating in the Fashion Design department's 3rd annual gallery exhibition, “We Are One in Fashion.” This exhibition will display original fashions created by the junior fashion design majors for men, women, and children inspired by the traditional clothing worn by different countries and cultures from around the world.

In order to get a head start and better prepare themselves, the students requested to have summer meetings with Program Coordinator and Professor Sally DiMarco and the Studio Manager Erika Yuille. During these summer sessions the students are encouraged to begin designing, draping, and choosing culturally appropriate fabrics.
