My name is Alli McAlister and I am a sophomore at the University of Cincinnati. I am from a small town in Indiana and have really enjoyed my time in the city. I’ve been studying business and fashion, but am beginning the DAAP Fashion Design Program next fall. I am really excited to make this transition and believe the Bonnie Cashin class has been a great insight into the fashion world. Not only have I learned how to photograph and document garments, I’ve learned how to curate an exhibit and throw an event. The course has also allowed me to extend my fashion vocabulary, being that we researched fashion terminology to properly describe garments. I have had a great experience and met many great UC students from a variety of disciplines on campus. I would recommend that everybody take a UC Forward class, especially Bonnies!
