The Documentary, "DRESSED" is a compelling story of a young clothing designer from Weinland Park in Columbus, Ohio, Nary Manivong, who defied the odds of a broken childhood and homelessness to reach his ultimate dream, a show of his collection at New York Fashion Week. A truly inspiring story that unfolds against the backdrop of the fashion industry in New York and the streets of Weinland Park. Woven within his story are accounts and commentary from leading fashion industry experts, students and designers who relate their own perspectives about what it takes to make it in the highly competitive world of fashion.
Both the filmmaker and the designer (Nary Manivong) will do Q+A after the screening.
