My name is Kathleen Gudas and I am a rising junior Feb at Middlebury College. I am pursuing a joint English-Theatre major, and have participated in a few on-campus productions. From an early obsession with the elaborate costumes of Broadway musicals to my love for the garments created on Project Runway, I have always been interested in fashion. I love how the intersection of art and fashion can ultimately lead to innovative designs and textiles, and in other words, tangible prints that can be worn on a daily basis.
This concept of “wearing art” initially drew me to Cerebella Design. As a person with an embarrassingly dismal background in science, I was unaccustomed to approaching fashion from a scientific perspective, but fascinated by the textile creation process. It was hard to fathom that Cerebella’s beautiful prints were microscopic representations of various organisms! Rather than viewing fashion as a product of the shifting style trends of the seasons, it was interesting to think that a garment could serve as an aesthetically appealing symbol for the unwavering component of all life, the cell.
After hearing more about microscopic fashion from chatting with Ariele, I came to the conclusion that I would learn so much if I interned for Cerebella Design. I was attracted to the fact that I would be both working for a company that explored intersection of art, science, and fashion and intimately observing the growth of this start-up company. I am looking forward to learning more about the business and marketing side of fashion, and I hope to find strategic ways to increase Cerebella’s visibility across the country. Keeping this central goal in mind, I will be working on blog content development, social media marketing, local outreach, and networking with boutiques and other potential retail locations this summer.
