Lu speaks at workshop on Haiti's Apparel SectorLu speaks at workshop on Haiti's Apparel Sector12/2/2022 5:00:00 AM<p>On November 21, 2022, <strong>Sheng Lu</strong>, associate professor of fashion and apparel studies, served as a speaker for the Designing and Implementing an Aftercare Program for Haiti´s Apparel Sector workshop hosted by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and World Bank. During his presentation, Lu shared his latest findings on U.S. fashion companies’ evolving sourcing strategies and the implications for Haiti suppliers.

Meanwhile, over 90% of Haiti’s apparel exports go to the United States alone. Participants to the workshop included senior Haiti economic and trade officials, industry leaders and officers from the World Bank and other international organizations.​​<br></p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#d586cffd-ad4b-45b9-8581-f6a2bbf70d87;L0|#0d586cffd-ad4b-45b9-8581-f6a2bbf70d87|Presentations;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=258

Roelse conducts research on historic wedding dressRoelse conducts research on historic wedding dress3/11/2022 5:00:00 AM<p>​In 1953, American couturier Ann Lowe designed the wedding dress for future First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier’s marriage to John F. Kennedy, a dress that became one of the most recognizable and beloved wedding dresses in America. As a Black designer, Lowe didn’t receive proper credit for her work at the time. <strong>Katya Roelse</strong>, instructor in fashion and apparel studies, and Winterthur textile conservator Kate Sahmel recently visited the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston together to examine and document the construction of the original dress, which is too fragile to display on a form. Working with University students, Roelse will use the information gathered from this visit to create a reproduction of the dress for the Winterthur exhibition <em>Ann Lowe: American Couturier</em>, opening September 2023.<br></p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#6db99fdb-00c1-4351-83a6-46de89e19c2d;L0|#06db99fdb-00c1-4351-83a6-46de89e19c2d|Research;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=163
