Master of Arts in Costume Studies

Meeting through Modesty

Outrageous runway spectacles and sexualized media messages highlight tension between fashion and modesty.  But for millions of consumers there's no contradiction.  This afternoon symposium features designers, journalists and scholars in a conversation about Modest Fashion - not just modesty in dress for religious reasons, but modesty in fashionable dress.
