Another class she teaches is color theory, this class  teaches that the history and purpose of colors, whats the science behind color. In her classes her students designed the UK plaid, her students design the official plaid for the University of Kentucky  there had been online voting for which plaid they preferred over 30 participants. She states that how fashion design works is that designers release there ideas to the world and then during winter months displays spring clothes and vise versa. The concept of a fashion shows has been completely different now we have entered the time of the individual. Overall she incorporates design in her work everyday.
