    Transdisciplinary Fashion Show

    The Transdisciplinary Fashion Show returns! In this annual project, Upper School students design and build garments that reflect inquiries in other classes. The students then model the garments "on the runway" for the school community. This year, our sixth-graders have created garments that reflect specific genres of music. Parents are welcome to attend!
