American fashion designer Lela Rose, whose eponymous collection ranges from ready-to-wear to bridal,  will discuss her experiences in the fashion industry, insights on design, and personal inspirations. With Lela’s guidance, participants will take on a fashion materials challenge to design a wearable look.

This is an exposure-level workshop suitable for teens and college students; no prior experience in design is needed to participate.
