SAIC x UNIQLO Chicago Installation

My photography is being displayed on the Mag Mile! 

This spring, Uniqlo collaborated with my Fashion Photography Class at SAIC to produce an installation at their Michigan Avenue flagship store! The installation combines large-scale photographs of models and mannequins wearing garments fashioned from sustainable fabrics and re-usable Uniqlo outfits, which were crafted by SAIC Fashion Design students. 

Via Uniqlo, “We're pleased to continue supporting the Arts while creating a more inspired and culturally relevant shopping experience through this partnership. SAIC is a leader in educating the world's most influential artists, designers, and scholars. Come join us and experience this inspiring exhibit.”
