The department of textiles, merchandising and interiors hosted the inaugural “NYC to ATH Fashion DIY Event” as part of the FACS Week celebrations Oct. 10-11.
Students participated in a series of seminars and workshops related to fashion, interiors, embellishment, trends, denim finishing, fabric dyeing processes and career experience.
These events provided a great opportunity for students to network with industry professionals and experience first-hand how some of the artisanal aspects of the industry are still being used today.
