The History of Fashion
Alexandra Sargent Capps saw a natural intersection between fashion design and design thinking within her History of Fashion Class. In Fall 2017, the class become part of the Enhancing Existing Courses Deep DIVE. As a final product of the course, Sargent Capps’ students produced “Rethinking Collegiate Couture,” which showcases student-driven approaches and solutions to fashion sustainability through human-centered design.
