Contemporary Japanese Fashion Symposium and Challenge

Additional message from Carolyn Armbruster, Crow Collection of Asian Art (

Crow Design Challenge
If your students Instagram, we have another opportunity for them to participate in the conversation about the Mary Baskett Collection of Japanese Fashion! Here is our Instagram page: And here is the last post’s caption which includes the hashtag your students could use: “Inspired by the Mary Baskett Collection of Japanese Fashion? Take our #crowdesignchallenge and create your own piece.” If they’re interested, we encourage them to take a photo of their drawing and post it using #crowdesignchallenge.
To avoid any confusion, I would like to let you know that not all sketches posted will be in response to the same prompt that your students received (a garment that changes the shape of the body). There is also a more free-form drawing station in the exhibit.
We hope to see you and your students at the Symposium! Please let me know if you have any further questions.
