    78. These Fashion Students Are Taking Matters Into Their Own Hands

    78. These Fashion Students Are Taking Matters Into Their Own Hands

    In an effort to take matters into their own hands and offer something to their peers that they felt their institution wasn’t doing enough of, Zhexuan (Katherine) Hu, Grace Gordon, and Helen Sotropa of the Parsons School of Design came together to create DIALECTIVE, a fashion collective that celebrates the upcoming generation of radically distinct independent talent. Along with their efforts, DIALECTIVE is hosting a runway showcase with up to 20 designers and 3-5 looks shown per designer. Together, the three have created something that is more than just a runway showcase, but a community and a network that invests a sense of belonging and support for their peers. DIALECTIVE is not just about the promotion of recent graduate work, but a collaborative space wherein like-minded individuals can receive feedback on their work during their thesis year and post-graduation. In this episode of the podcast, Katherine, Grace and Helen, talk on the mission of DIALECTIVE, their experience as seniors at the Parsons School of Design, what they're most excited about graduating college, and much more. You can find DIALECTIVE on Instagram at @dialective.xyz and their website dialective.xyz
