Through a mentorship program with SAIC (MDesign) graduate students, University of Chicago MODA students have been working on the concept of ‘salvaging’ in fashion design, theory and construction.  This student workshop with Jessamyn Hatcher, Caroline Bellios and Nika Levando will discuss their ongoing salvaged garment projects, which will then be exhibited at the Salvage 3.1 Symposium on May 13. You can find more information about the MODA Fashion Show here.
