Fashion Design MFA Class of 2021
FIT’s Fashion Design MFA class of 2021 are interviewed and their designs are highlighted in an extensively illustrated article from 1Granary, which calls the collection “sartorial genius.” “With a history of cultivating and nurturing artistic talent dating back nearly eight decades, it comes as no surprise that the graduates’ collections show an array of techniques, approaches, and inspirations. The collections’ themes are ranging from incorporating functionality in new ways, honouring tradition and family history, to addressing rebellion and trauma. All throughout, their designs are deeply personal without losing attention to craftsmanship and innovation. At FIT, where creativity is currency, the MFA class of 2021 can only be described as rich.”
Bradley Erickson, adjunct, Fashion Design, on what colors to wear for athletic wear: “for something like yoga or meditation, calming, cool colors assist in shedding the stress of the day.”
Vincent Quan, associate professor, Fashion Business Management, on NFT’s in Fashion: “As consumers embrace the concept of purchasing fashion NFTs and “wearing” their newly acquired digital apparel and accessories on an avatar, fashion brands must look beyond the introduction stage and anticipate a rapid rise of NFT demand.”
