Ephemeral Fashion in Paris: Gail Chovan

We sat down with TXA Design Lecturer Gail Chovan to discuss her recent collection, DEFIANCE, that will be launched in Paris this week at the Galerie Virginie Louvet. Her current collection DEFIANCE is non-traditional in that it highlights seven pieces made from a 1930's movie banner. The pieces will be displayed as an installation in a gallery rather than walked down the runway.
