  Mary Louise DuBose —  Website    I've always loved fashion, but not because of the glamour of the runway or obsession with appearance. Fashion is about more than just the clothes; it is about self-expression. With the clothes on our backs, we are able to show our unique opinions, personalities, and individuality to the world. Because of this, every garment I design aims to showcase artistry and individuality effectively demonstrating that clothes are more than adornments for the body, they are works of art.
