 What's the story behind what you wear?

Investigate the real messages behind fashion industry images with Deconstructing Fashion. Evaluate the advertisements and commercials you see every day and create a commercial comeback in response. Communicate your opinion with a website you create, and earn digital badges along the way.

Plus! Showcase your images and videos at a multimedia exhibit at the Bronx Library Center May 6 - June 6.

Support for this Hive Fashion program was provided by a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, administered by Mozilla, and in partnership with Hive Learning Networks.
