For more than 20 years, the Thomas Jefferson University’s annual fashion show was the “hot-ticket” event for the fashion-design program. Mirroring industry trends, the end-of-year showcase has evolved into a Fashion Design Film that highlights students’ design processes, inspirations and backstories. We speak with program director Farai Simoyi, dean Michael Leonard and a pair of students who discuss how this transition gives graduates a leg-up in an evolving future of work environment.

At Thomas Jefferson University, a team of industrial-design students have teams up with the Center for Autism and Neurodiversity in an effort to create neurodiverse friendly chairs for the Specialty Care Pavilion. In this inaugural episode of The Nexus Podcast, we embedded with the “neurodiverse furniture” team as they conceptualized, fabricated and developed a product which could bring comfort to a wide array of patients once the Pavilion opens in 2026. Read more on The Nexus about this project, and how architecture can help those with autism engage with the world.   Social Channels: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JeffersonUniv/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/JeffersonUniv Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jeffersonuniv/?hl=en TikTok: @_jeffersonuniv_ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/JeffersonUniv LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/school/thomas-jefferson-university
