Textile & Fashion Design Majors

Colorful costumes designed by MECA students and faculty were featured in "An Alice Symphony."

The colorful costumes seen in the Portland Symphony Orchestra and The Portland Ballet’s performance of “An Alice Symphony” by Del Tredici were designed by Textile & Fashion Design students and faculty.  Part of an Enchanted Favorites program, the symphony was in honor of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice in Wonderland (a similar tribute took place at a MECA hosted exhibit at the Portland Public Library). To fit the two different bodies of the performers playing Alice, Ariana Faria ’17 designed a blue dress with a combined knit and woven fabric .
