Material Institute Brings Free Fashion Classes to New Orleans's Ninth Ward

Combining New Orleans's rich fashion history—from Mardi Gras to the annual NOLA Fashion Week—with the progressive approach and pedagogy of the Black Mountain College, a new fashion school recently opened its doors in the city's Ninth Ward. Designed by London-based design collective Assemble and known as Material Institute, the unique space offers free classes and workspace for makers of all levels and has ambitious plans for future development.
