In collaboration with Marymount’s Department of Fashion Design & Merchandising, Cody Gallery presents Portfolio in Motion: Metamorphosis, supported by Fashion Centre at Pentagon City. This exhibition showcases Marymount’s fashion design student’s senior lines created for a specific target market and freshman designer’s tailored garments
This year’s theme for Portfolio in Motion, Metamorphosis, was coined by the students in response to the difficult year of 2020 experiencing growth through. The students interpreted this year’s PIM as a new transformation and a new era. Leaving a difficult year behind them, they are choosing to celebrate a positive change! Butterflies represent resurrection, hope, change and growth. The students connected this idea to the reality of the world they’re living in and its effect on the fashion industry. The process of transformation being Metamorphosis.
