Description of Funded Activity

In celebration of Indiana University’s Bicentennial, fashion design students in the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design researched, designed, and created sustainable Hoosier-themed spirit wear inspired by cream and crimson fashion and historic IU-themed apparel from the Sage Collection and the University Archives.

This interaction between campus history, special collections, and contemporary resale clothing served as a catalyst for these re-fashioned sustainable designs. This exhibit, Sustainable Spirit: A Celebration of Campus Culture, History and Fashion, juxtaposes inspirational artifacts from campus collections with each student’s unique perspective of what it means to be a Hoosier.
