Albert Capraro (speaker)




In this audio recording, fashion designer and Parsons School of Design alumnus Albert Capraro introduces his project based on painting and flowers. Although the recording begins while the critic direction is already underway, Capraro, professors Frank Rizzo and Marie Essex, and students appear to be discussing how students could use a computer laboratory to produce their own fabrics. Capraro asks the students to remain unstructured and not to get caught up in detail. He suggests that students paint directly on fabric. Students then ask questions about the project. In the fashion show program, this project is titled, "A Painted Garden."
