Hartford Fashion Week Panel & Reception

UConn Hartford Campus
10 Prospect Street
Hartford, CT 06103

Please join UConn's School of Fine Arts and Hartford Fashion Week for a panel, discussing the history, identity and culture around dress and clothing. 

Culture & Community through Attire: In a global market of fast fashion, our panelists will discuss the ways in which individuals can reject mass consumption and choose adornment to reflect personhood, champion diversity, and celebrate culture. In a tense political climate, personal fashion can be used to express statements, communicate ideas, and cultivate dialogue that can encourage community engagement and progress.

Moderator: Dean Anne D'Alleva, School of Fine Arts

Panelists: Christina Lorraine Bullard, Assistant Professor of Costume Design
                  Brandy S. Culp, Richard Koopman Curator of American Decorative Arts, Wadsworth  
                  Atheneum Museum of Art
                  Frank Mitchell, Executive Director, The Amistad Center for Art & Culture, Wadsworth
                  Atheneum Museum of Art

Following the panel, enjoy hors d'oeuvres and an open bar while networking with alumni, faculty and community members. 

The cost is $10 per person. Day of registration accepted.
