Vincent Quevedo is an award-winning designer and Associate Professor of the KSU Fashion School. This exhibition of recent designs and garments explores Quevedo’s inventive experiments and manipulation of materials. Discharged fabrics, real leather against faux leather, industrial cords are all cut, patched, quilted, crocheted and transformed. Fortuna , the goddess of luck and fate, embodies his willingness to be open and follow where the process will lead.

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 7, 5 - 7 pm.
