Casual wardrobe staple or work of art? For these FDM 338 students, it’s both! In Ju-Young Kang’s 2D/3D Computer-Aided Design class, students created Hawaiian-inspired T-shirt prints. Twelve of the designs, by nine FDM students, were accepted for presentation and exhibited at the 2019 7th annual T-Shirt International Exhibition at the Gyo Dong Museum of Art in South Korea!
Students at the recent Convocation showed the usual pride, excitement, and stacks of colorful lei. But there was something different about their appearance this year. Spring 2019 was the first class to receive a congratulatory CTAHR stole, handmade by committed students and faculty of the college. The work of the volunteer collective, the “Stole Society,” was spearheaded by FDM but included other departments as well.
For one glamorous and dazzling evening, Honolulu was the fashion capital of the Pacific as UH students and models presented the “next big thing” in clothing design at the 53rd Fashion Show. Models in dresswear, swimwear, and menswear, and the individual collections of three junior FDM designers strutted down the runway showing off this year’s design collections.
66 students from diverse fields of study presented their research—and creativity—at the 31st Student Research Symposium on April 15. Changing up the format this year, the event challenged undergraduate and graduate students to communicate their work in just five minutes, in language appropriate to a lay audience.
This Monday is the 31st Annual Student Research Symposium, which brings together graduate and undergraduate students from across the college to present their research in the areas of Product Design and Business; Sustainability & Conservation; Food Systems, Security, & Safety; and Biotechnology.
