Interview by Yuliya Suleymanova. Seattle, WA – Sun Valley ID.

 

I have been planning an interview with Carole McClellan, an American designer noted for using leather and repurposed fur for quite a while. I was trying to remember how long we’ve known each other. I believe it has been 15 years. Time flies! I have experienced the luxury of having Carole design several unique pieces.

 

Carole has been an incredible mentor for me. I would always seek advice from Carole on either producing a fashion show, consulting on the teaching material for my fashion marketing and branding courses, working with local fashion designers, or asking her to share fashion industry knowledge and expertise on the fashion discussion panel at the Fashion Group International, Seattle Chapter.

Event Name: Fashion is ART Release Party
Event Date: Saturday, May 1st 5:30 PM & 8PM
Event Location: Tin Can Alley Tacoma

Due to Covid-19, we have decided to film Fashion is ART and release it for an in-person screening at our Fashion is ART Release Party on Saturday, May 1st at Tin Can Alley in Tacoma.

Traditional Vietnamese art has a very long and rich history, which is going back as far as 10,000 years to the times of the Stone Age. Starting in the 2nd century BC, Vietnam fell under the millennium of Chinese domination, which deeply influenced Vietnamese arts and culture and we can see that influence continued and started to really flourish after the independence from China in the 10th century AD and through the centuries. Beginning in the 1860s and until the 1970s, was a period in Vietnamese history that brought strong influence of French art under colonial rule.

Despite such heavy impact from various foreign powers, Vietnamese art preserved and retained its unique and distinctive character and style, especially the art of silk painting, which has been a big part of Vietnamese culture for ages.
