My name is Taylor Valentino and I am a Communication major and Fashion Design Studies minor here at UC. I am a second year student from Cleveland, Ohio. I would love to have a career in Visual Merchandising in the future. I took this class because I am not only interested in today’s fashion, but fashion of the past as well. I wanted to learn more about vintage garments and how fashion has evolved into what it is today. I think it is so fascinating to see which styles have stood the test of time from Bonnie’s era to the present. I enjoyed learning about Bonnie and all of the other powerful, timeless designers we have studied in this course. This class was a collaboration between art, history, and fashion with a very interactive nature and I definitely learned a lot.
