Drexel Fashion Design students gave a nod to nature on the runway at Urban Outfitters’ corporate headquarters in the Navy Yard on June 10.
Twenty-eight senior and graduate students from the Westphal College of Media Arts & Design exhibited pieces that peered into the return of handwork and textiles, which highlighted an overall theme of sustainability. Conservation of specialized domestic production types including knitting, weaving and print were a point of focus during Fashion ‘17.
