The Milstein Center officially opens its doors.
I am a Masters student in Fashion and Textile Studies at FIT and have just finished an independent study of the Riot Grrrl Archives at NYU. I am writing my thesis about riot grrrl fashion covering the late 80s to mid/late 90s. I am interested in talking with women who were involved with the movement and how they used dress or other body adornments to further the political and/or feminist views they were stating through their music, in zines, in their communities. This is a largely unexplored area of subcultural style among women and I hope to expand the body of literature on this topic. Please contact me at michelle.pronovost@gmail. if you are willing to participate in a phone interview or email questionnaire.
