Description

In 2012, in collaboration with local institutions and participants, I executed a site-specific fashion collection shaped by the history, culture, geography, and people of Cincinnati, Ohio. ‘Grey Cincinnati’ addressed racial segregation, a timely issue as the city’s current urban renewal re-opens a discussion about race and social equality. This site-specific fashion collection sought to bring together the segregated African- American and Caucasian communities, transforming Cincinnati into an arena for cultural discourse (Kwon 26).
