Cactus Fashion

The Ancient People stopped by for a visit to the Fashion Design Lab at West Campus on February 7th.  We had a good number of very wealthy Egyptians and a Roman “Lady of the Night”.  We had a couple of “lower class-types”, but the wealthy came out in numbers!

Here are a few of the good photos (we had a couple of camera issues and some photos were too dark to edit):

Everyone had great final projects; lots of FUN and we all learned more interesting history about the history of clothing!  The students dressed in costume and presented a creative board which represented their particular area of research.  We learned about wedding dresses through the ages, the 40s, 50s, 60, 70s, flappers, bathing suits, hairstyles, and the Lolita influence on fashion.

Great fun on Tuesday with “History of Clothing” students dressed as Egyptians, Greeks and Romans walking around Pima Community College West Campus presenting their “ancient personas” to each other.  Here are a few photos….
