Student Work Spotlight: PRETTY/UGLY

Fashion, Waste, and Consumption… it’s PRETTY/UGLY.

Pretty/Ugly is an in-progress graduate thesis by Tara Maurice (‘20) and Caroline Zhang (‘20) exploring the discomfort and disconnect between the reasons we love fashion and it’s oversized negative impacts on the environment. The aim is to transform the anxiety that creative professionals feel about the impacts of their work after leaving their hands, into the radical change that is required to rebuild the systems that produce fashion. Pretty/Ugly lives in the digital, printed and collaborative human space.
