Designed to pose the question, “What inspires you?” the Inspired Speakers Series features individuals who are not only passionate, but inspire others along the way. Our fifth talk features Fabio Costa, a featured designer in the "Folk Couture: Fashion and Folk Art" exhibition and the second-place winner of “Project Runway: Season 10”. Costa was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. At the age of four, he was raised by his grandmother, a seamstress, who ignited his passion for construction. Fabio spent his formative years fascinated with how fabric translates into form and function, an endless manipulation of techniques based on storytelling. He had a strong connection with fashion design. He draped bed sheets around his body reminiscent of Grecian times and developed a distinctive eye for design. He continued to express his personality and identity through avant-garde fashion.

Free for Appleton members and CF students; $10 for nonmembers. For questions, contact Griselle Gonzalez-Vazquez at .
