Exploring Fashion - Visiting Levi's HQ

 Friday was our final day of Exploring Fashion Camp.  We got an early start and visited the Headquarters of Levi Strauss and Co. .  What a treat we were in for.  Starting off in the lobby with a little history lesson, we learned how Levi Strauss started  the company during the Gold Rush. 
 Onward to THE VAULT where the students viewed archived and restored historical garments and some great Hollywood memorabilia like Jennifer Lopez's customized Levi's and the photo of Marilyn Monroe wearing her Levi's.
Fun in the Vault under the Hollywood sign!

More fun in the vault!

Look what you can do with Denim overalls and a little blazer.  Great style in the lobby.

Our team with Sage.
 Designer, Sage Mathews gave us a tour of the Men's design department and answered Anese's miriad of questions about the design and development process. 
 We ended the tour in the pattern making department.  Pattern maker, Jose, showed us how to manipulate patterns in the CAD system they use to work on patterns.  So Interesting.

What a great Visit!  Thanks to Beth MacLean, Susie Poulelis, Elaine Hamblin & Jose for such a rich and rewarding experience.

  5. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm
    planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm
    looking for something unique. P.
    S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  6. First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't
    mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Kudos!

    if you knew of any community forums that cover the same
    topics talked about in this article? I'd really like to be a part of online community where I can get comments from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Bless you!
