Join us on Thursday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. to hear Department of Design and Merchandising faculty members Karen Hyllegard and Jennifer Ogle discuss the unique Fashion FUNdamentals program they have developed for middle school girls, which offers both technical programming — to address real-world problems in the global fashion industry and cultivate interest in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines — and social programming, to address topics of concern among adolescent girls and build self-worth. Program participants also gain an introduction to the world of historic apparel and textiles, as represented in the Avenir Museum collections. Several young graduates will talk about their new Fashion FUNdamentals skills.

Lectures take place in the  Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising, Classroom 157, 216 East Lake Street. All lectures are FREE and open to the public. The Avenir Museum galleries stay open from 5–7 p.m. on lecture evenings
