Fashion designer Mimi Plange's Autumn/Winter 2011 collection "Scarred Perfection," evoked awe and wonder from fashion insiders and challenged conventional perceptions of beauty. Inspired by Benin cultural traditions of body modification, SCAD's presentation of Plange's collection showcases her deliberate focus on detail and her intensive use of repetition in pleats, ruffles and ornamentation. A rich color story of crimson, black and gold transforms this fashion collection into a bold and dreamy experience.

Designer talk: April 19, 7-8 p.m.
