Spring Meeting of the IACDE USA Southern Chapter I Fashion Show FDSA on April 22
Online event, Saturday, Mar 20th 2021

Dear Fellow Southern Chapter Member,

You are cordially invited to attend the Southern Chapter Zoom meeting on March 20th at 11 AM.

We are pleased to be joined as our guest speaker by Lisa Jarvis, daughter of our SC member, Dr. Christine Cole, Professor Emerita, Materials Science and Engineering at Clemson Textiles. become one of the top international stylists/fashion directors working in Europe. Currently located in Paris, Lisa is working with many of the couture labels (she just recently finished a shoot with Chanel), and is currently working with Comme des Garcons (a luxury brand based in Paris and Tokyo).  Here’s a link to some of the related photos which can be publicly accessed: https://www.instagram.com/lisajarvis_stylist/?hl=en

Specific topics for the discussion will be determined from questions submitted by UGA students in Dr. Laura McAndrews & Prof. Greg Vessels Fashion Design classes (both Laura and Greg are active Southern Chapter members), as well other members who would like to submit their own questions. We anticipate an interesting presentation as she shares her insights into the industry with us.

I am also very excited to announce that the Southern Chapter-IACDE will be sponsoring a fashion show put on by The Fashion Design Student Association (FDSA) at UGA.  The spring show will be Thursday, April 22 at the Classic Center Pavilion. The event will be recorded and available for review afterwards on our website. The theme is “street style”, with the show entitled “Street Style State of Mind”.  More information will follow as it becomes available.

On a separate note, the Southern Chapter has decided to again offer our members some Covid relief.  As many of you recall, we waived the 2020 dues and invited everyone to attend meetings virtually on Zoom.  We have again decided to waive the 2021 dues and continue to carry over any memberships that have already been paid into the 2022 calendar year.

I will send out a Zoom link on March 13th and hope you will all be able to join us for this exciting presentation on March 20th.  Anyone who would like to attend please email me rickelrod@comcast.net to be invited to the meeting.
