In addition to being amazing in the classroom, our faculty are also accomplishing incredible things outside of the classroom. Check out what Berta, Paul and Milan have been up to below:
Berta Pavlov – Dior Exhibition at R.O.M.
With a team of George Brown graduates, Berta Pavlov, performed an extensive research and analysis of Dior techniques
and processes to reproduce two vintage Dior garments. Over 100 hours of work at the new cutting edge Fashion Exchange facility were put into analysis and creation of the iconic Delphine dress. The Dior exhibit
at the R.O.M. gave insight into the creative process and production techniques during the post-war fashion industry.
Watch a short video, “Decoding Dior’s Delphine”, showing Berta’s work and how this vintage piece was recreated.
