What happens to fashion during challenging economic times? David Wolfe, creative director of The Doneger Group, will explore this topic when he comes to Syracuse University on Tuesday, March 24. He will speak at 3:30 p.m. in the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium in Newhouse 3. The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in SU pay lots.
Wolfe will discuss how fashion can survive an economic meltdown and will compare today to other challenging times in fashion history, including the Great Depression and World War II.
