In this audio recording, Parsons School of Design alumna and fashion designer Tracy Reese discusses her project concept, "3-D Dresses." The dresses are to exhibit volume and shape, and should be modern and "architectural." Reese discusses different shapes, fabric types, and colors. Students then ask questions about the project while Reese shows them books for inspiration. Reese advises that she wants to see the students' research in their designs. While Reese's voice is audible, it is difficult to hear student voices. Background noise is present throughout the recording. In the fashion show program, this project is titled, "3-D Dresses."
