Fashion Unraveled Colloquium: Michelle McVicker 'The Traces of Use:' The Dresses of Frida Kahlo
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.
