Cornell in Washington

I spent all of 2015 in Washington, DC. I’d only visited twice before this and really enjoyed the vibrance of the city. In Spring 2015, I volunteered for Only Make Believe by making costumes for the shows they perform at children’s hospitals. My semester paper was about outsourcing and Levi Strauss & Company. In Fall 2015, I interned at the Office of Textiles and Apparel (OTEXA). I learned about international trade as it applies to apparel design. My semester paper was about OTEXA and why the government would have such an office.

Cornell in Washington is a satellite campus located in DC with a building donated by alumni where we live and go to classes. If NYC is where fashion happens, then DC is where fashion is legislated. It was enlightening to learn just how much politics go into the clothes we wear.
