Block is a line that commemorates the routine garments of America during the 1990s. The collection looks beyond the popularized styles of the decade, focusing on the garments that went unnoticed. Children’s books and department store catalogs are among the media that inspired the line. It honors the clothing worn by ordinary, everyday people who were authentic in their time. The essentials found in this clothing have been consolidated and converted into an updated ready-to-wear line. Block was created for MICA's 25th Annual Benefit Fashion Show, Authenticity. It was showcased on April 13 & 14, 2018 in MICA's Falvey Hall. Documentation took place in Baltimore's Mount Vernon Neighborhood. Photographs by Summer Kalani Howard.
