Interested in the world of fashion? Even if you're not an aspiring fashion designer, you’ll enjoy this PRETTY POWERFUL program. We are excited to invite Jay Calderin to our Zoom stage to discuss his book, The Fashion Design Reference & Specification Book, which has just been translated into French (La Mode: Un Guide Pratique De Reference).

During his presentation, Jay will guide us through the fashion design process and connect the dots between many contemporary practices in the fashion industry and their historical origins. He will also tell us about Boston Fashion Week (BFW), which he founded in 1995, and how the 27th BFW21 (October 3-9, 2021) was a city-wide Augmented Reality fashion experience! 

This VIRTUAL presentation will be followed by a live Q&A, so come ready with your questions!

Registration is required for this FREE Program
