Patrick Robinson (speaker)


September 11 1995


In this audio recording, Parsons School of Design alumnus and fashion designer Patrick Robinson discusses a project for students to create "suits in a new way," using pastels. Robinson speaks extensively about potential colors students could use. He encourages students to think broadly about what a jacket can look like and how it can behave when worn. Robinson shares his background, his process of designing a collection and how he finds inspiration, including looking at vintage clothing. Students then ask questions about the project. The sound quality of this recording is clear, although student voices are often inaudible. In the fashion show program, this project is titled, "Pastels of Spring."
