Victor Leonard

BA Candidate - Fashion Design, Marketing, Race, Gender, and Sexuality

“My first year interdisciplinary seminar, Picture Theories, taught by Professor Chinnie Ding, laid the foundation for my evaluating imagery in society,” says Victor. “Professor Ding helped me understand and analyze our cultural perception of imagery in many different forms and contexts.”

The Washington, DC native plans to use his concentration to evaluate how fashion design and clothing is coded in our society to influence the way we view sexuality, gender, and race—and how the design process shapes cultural perception. While developing his concentration, he is also pursuing a minor in environmental science. Victor is actively involved with Gallatin student life and hosted prospective students for Gallatin’s Weekend on the Square events. He participated in the 2015 Gallatin Fashion Show, with his collection “Odyssey in Fashion,” which drew inspiration from Homer’s epic poem “The Odyssey.” Victor was selected to be a mentor for the Gallatin Writing Program’s Great World Texts Tutorial and will take classes at NYU London in the spring of 2016.
