A handful of lucky Fashion Design and Merchandising students travelled to attend Magic, the premier couture and fashion industry event held yearly in Las Vegas. FDM professor Andy Reilly escorted the students, who got to see lavish displays, attend seminars, and meet and mingle with some of fashion’s brightest stars. These images tell the story in the students’ own words.
Andy Reilly (Fashion Design & Merchandising) just published Crossing Gender Boundaries, which he co-edited with Ben Barry. This collection presents some of the most recent scholarship on the relationship between gender and fashion in historical and contemporary contexts. Through fourteen essays divided into three groups—looking at how dress creates, disrupts, and transcends gender—the chapters investigate gender issues through the lens of fashion.
