The adage- you get what you pay for does not apply to clothing. Quality clothing is something hard to come by these days, even with the increase of so-called "luxury brands". Learn about the myth of quality, how the industry markets the concept of quality and how it cuts corners in order to save $$ at the consumer's expense. Students will learn how to conduct their own quality control checks to make better purchases, becoming smarter and more empowered consumers. This class is a mix of lecture, hands-on, and demo.
