LECTURE | The Science of Fashion 

Rochester Museum and Science Center is kicking off this year's Science on the Edge lecture series with a lesson in fashion. Syracuse University professor Jeffrey Mayer will discuss drastic changes in fashion since the mid-1900's and how recent scientific discoveries and advances in technology — like 3D printing and "lab-grown" fabrics — have helped make the field what it is today. Mayer is a professor of fashion, fashion history, and textiles, as well as a curator for many local fashion-based exhibits and historical collections.

The Science of Fashion will take place Thursday, October 6, at the Rochester Museum of Science Center, 657 East Avenue. 7 p.m. General admission is $10; $6 for students. For more information, visit, or call 271-4320.
