For Carnegie Mellon’s 2021 Lunar Gala fashion show, Architecture undergraduate Aadya Bhartia developed Renasci, a fashion line which explores the interaction between growth and rebirth. Bhartia writes, “Adaptability and evolution work in unison as we traverse through various phases of our existence. The grounds of this evolution is determined by the environment we thrive in. Through Renasci, I aim to draw a parallel between the malleability of wire and the influence of the people who surround us. The delicate fabric contrasts against the rigid wire, creating a dialect between the two and imbibes an instance of rebirth.” Renasci was developed with the support of Microgrant #2021-027 from the Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art @ the Frontier.
