Vi Karmann ’25 (Graphic Design BFA) is the designer of the collection.

Autumn Kerr ’25 (General Fine Arts BFA) helped come up with the concept of the collection.

In their respective work, both focus on highlighting beauty in the world in the midst of chaos and confusion.

Rise presents a creative solution to the problems that come with rising: identifying and growing through challenging situations, in hard times. We amplify the strength in vulnerability with our “armored” wire structures that draw attention to each model’s bare skin; these structures are seamlessly integrated with the rest of the looks that are constructed from sleek, form-amplifying fabrics, including silk and various rayon blends.
