Fashion Unraveled Colloquium: r. Sonya Abrego “Denim, Smartphone Fade, and the Markings of Contemporary Labor”
Inspired by the MFIT exhibition Fashion Unraveled and organized by MFIT and the Fashion Research Network, this one-day colloquium explored the concepts of memory, wear, and imperfection in fashion. Speakers focused on imperfect garments and the significance of dressing as a habitual, intimate, and ephemeral act.
