My name is Jacob Laskowski and I am a senior at the University of Cincinnati, majoring in Architecture in the College of DAAP. I was born and raised in a small town in Northern Indiana. Over the past few semesters I assisted with some of the behind-the-scenes work for the Bonnie Cashin class and became interested in knowing more about her life and career as a designer. Along with the collaborative, cross disciplinary studio set up, created by the different majors and interests of the students, I was also interested in learning more about the libraries collection of garments, as well as the required knowledge that it takes to properly conserve a collection.
