She made costume design really fascinating!

My colleague Kiki Smith is a wonder woman and it’s great to see her recognized. Check out this month’s Smith Alumnae Quarterly to see why. First, Kiki has put together an impressive symposium on Narratives of Women’s Dress Symposium, taking place on Nov. 1 and 2nd. But really, the essence of Kiki can be found in a snippet on page 27. Hotel architect Tobin Schermerhorn (’80) cites Kiki as her most influential professor at Smith. Tobin notes, “She made costume design really fascinating, relating it back to history and politics. I spent every waking hour in the costume shop.”
