Join us for a panel discussion with Linzy Brekke-Aloise of Stonehill College; Jay Calderin of Boston Fashion Week; Michelle Finamore of the Museum of Fine Arts; and Pete Lankford of Timberland; moderated by Kimberly Alexander.
Throughout history, garments have been handed down to be worn in different contexts or to be used as material to create something new. Our panel will talk about the history of reuse and refashioning as well as how designers today are using secondhand clothing or previously disposed of material in new ways. This panel will be the first in an annual lecture series in honor of President Emeritus Dennis Fiori in recognition of his leadership. The lecture series is made possible by gifts from friends of the Society.
There will be a pre-talk reception at 5:30.
