Gloria Sachs (speaker)


September 12 1995


In this audio recording, fashion designer Sachs discusses her project concept, a collection of evening wear inspired by Indian handicrafts, but for an American clientele. She requests simple evening wear made fanstatic by embroidery, handpainting, and beads. Sachs discusses her experiences traveling in India, introduces books she has brought with her, and asks a colleague to explain images from India that they show to the students. The colleague, whose name sounds like Rajeed, explains the customs and clothing of India. It is mentioned that fabric samples brought to the critic session will be left onsite for the students to examine. Students then ask questions about the project. The sound quality is clear throughout the recording, although it is sometimes difficult to hear students' voices. In the fashion show program, this project is titled, "The World of India."
