Fashion design student Sophie Andes Gascon (B.F.A. Fashion Design ’15) created a final thesis collection, which was selected to be shown in the 2015 Pratt Institute Fashion Show held on May 7.

In spring 2014, Gascon was awarded a scholarship from Cotton Incorporated. The scholarship allowed her to source materials and explore different ways of working with cotton in her collection, which was inspired by the people and landscape of her hometown of Manaus, Brazil. This short video offers a window into the processes and ideas that went into developing the collection.
