Andrea Mason: The philosophy behind fashion

Andrea Mason at TEDxURI 2018

The philosophy behind fashion

Andrea Mason explores a personal moment where she criticized someone for what they were wearing, but was able to use philosophical ideas to reason away her own judgement and instill tolerance into her perspective.

Andrea Mason

Student, Textiles, Fashion Merchandising, and Design + Philosophy

Andrea Mason is a student at the University of Rhode Island following her passion for clothing, and majored in textiles, fashion merchandising, and design. She added philosophy as a second major after realizing her desire to explore the nature of clothing. To her, that which we put on our bodies deserves deep consideration as reflections of our own natures. After studying fashion and philosophy simultaneously, she is excited to explore their intersection on the TEDx stage and beyond.
