In this audio recording, fashion designer and Parsons School of Design alumnus Louis Dell'Olio discusses two ideas for student projects, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "Homage to Gernreich," and asks for feedback from students about which project they would like to do. Following a question and answer session in which the voice of a professor, possibly Marie Essex, is heard, they select, "Homage to Rudi Gernreich." In the course of the session, Dell'Olio relates information about Rudi Gernreich, and introduces a book about the designer. In the fashion show program, this project is titled, "Remembering Rudi."
