Introducing Victoria Hopgood

Leave a comment

It is my pleasure to introduce Victoria Hopgood as a member of the FRC team. She is a talented photographer and this summer, she will photograph artifacts from the collection, as well as assist with research and design related projects in the FRC. She has also taken over the FRC’s instagram account @RyersonFRC. Last week, she began with the theme of polka dots and will adopt a new theme each week of the summer. I invite you to join in to see her selection of beautiful garments in the FRC on Instagram.

In the fall, Victoria Hopgood will commerce her third year in the Fashion Communication program at Ryerson. Victoria has interned for Mass Exodus and volunteered for many fashion events and weeks. She hopes to use her artistic skills and eye for design to pursue a career in graphic design.
