“The War is Over” Retrospective of Fashion on WW1 & WW2
Instead of reading 1-2 paragraphs on historical clothing from a history textbook, students at the Henry Ford Academy: Alameda School of Art and Design created their own historical garments illustrating WW1 and WW2. With help from their World History teacher, Lindsay Rodriguez, and local artist, Monessa Esquivel, students learned the process of cutting, shredding, and sewing to create fashion that expressed creativity and was historically accurate. Their culminating projects are on display in their classroom for the community to see.
