Alexandra Deutsch whose vintage persona on Instagram is @volumes_of_vintage, is a fashion historian, vintage collector and creator of the #lovelettertobaltimorevintage social media campaign. In her talk, Quarantine Fashion: A Love Letter to Baltimore Vintage she will discuss the phenomenon of fashion in quarantine. Her illustrated chat will explore how people are connecting through clothing not only in Baltimore, but on a global scale. By highlighting various fashion in quarantine campaigns such as the ones created by local art and fashion influencers like Bmore Art and Baltimore Snap, she will explore how shopping your own closet to express yourself when you are just staying home can be a means of linking people together in new and interesting ways. Great fashion, like all great arts, is so often born out of tragedy and this inspiring talk will explore a side of fashion, and vintage in particular, that is about connectivity and community.
