  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Fashion Design

Originality in fashion design results from a rigorous process of developing and editing ideas to solve specific design problems. Students work with professional faculty and guest mentors on all aspects of the design process. Working in teams, they create clothing for several mentors simultaneously, emulating the fashion design studio and following the industry’s seasonal schedule. Recent mentors have included Bob Mackie, Claire Pettibone ’89, Billabong, Halston with the Humane Society, Urban Outfitters, and EleVen by Venus Williams. Junior and senior designs are featured at the annual Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. Among the 2013-14 mentors are Dosa, David Meister, Ame Austin Max ('95)/Max Studio, Nike, UnderArmour, and Mattel Barbie with Rod Beattie ('86)/Bleu.
