About The Author
Adriana Hill is entering her third year of the Fashion Communications program at Ryerson University in Toronto. Her mixed studies of fashion theory, history, and illustration have led to her deep appreciation of Haute Couture and historical dress construction. This appreciation motivates her research interest in 18th Century Baroque dress and its relationship with Asian traditional dress through Orientalism. After concluding her studies at Ryerson Adriana hopes to pursue a postgraduate education in Fashion History and work in curation.
