Caroline Bellios is a professor of Fashion Design and History at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MA student in the department of Visual and Critical Studies. Her current research ranges from 19th century hair jewelry, embodiment, and the transformative nature of touch, to the potential of fashion in the museum space, the memory space, and as a platform for inclusivity. With colleagues in the city, Caroline is building the Chicago Fashion Lyceum, a new collaborative body for fashion discourse. She would also like to hear stories about your grandmother.
