On Wednesday, fashion designer Trina Turk visited the senior design class to give them a direction for designing a spring 2016 collection. Turk’s modern, California-inspired clothing line has garnered fans such as actress Mindy Kaling, who has worn Turk’s designs on her show The Mindy Project.

Her direction for the class was to “create playful, chic ensembles for a trip to the Amalfi coast inspired by the Mediterranean sea and the late 60s, early 70s jetsetter lifestyle.” She also instructed the class to incorporate placed prints using direct-to-garment printing technology. In a few weeks, students will present their designs during a sketch selection by Turk, who will then choose the designs that will go into construction.
