Dallas, Texas -- After more than five decades dressing some of Hollywood's elite, it's safe to say Bob Mackie has stitched his place in fashion history. The 2019 Tony Award winner will be visiting El Centro College’s fashion department on Thurs., Nov. 14, at 1:30 p.m. for a forum with students and a tour of the facility. 

Students are preparing for the event by engaging in activities that will provide knowledge of Mackie and his storied career. The 11th floor fashion area will be “dressed” with work highlighting the talent and creativity of our students – past and present. The faculty are working to create ‘Mackie-like’ art that will be made into greeting cards and given to Mackie as a thank you gift.
