New York Fashion Week officially starts tomorrow and with Kanye and Rihanna getting all the buzz it's starting to feel more like a celebrity style showdown. We're not busting on #NYFW (no, really we're not!) but if it's not your thing yet you still love fashion we wanted to point out a few events that we think are definitely worthwhile.
Zero Waste Fashion Design Book Talk with Timo Rissanen and Holly Mcquillan.
With our own resident Zero Waste Rockstar (our description, not his) Daniel Silverstein, you know we're major fans of this concept. Well two industry leading pioneers, Timo Rissanen and Holly McQuillan have recently written a book on the subject and Parsons School of Design will be hosting a talk with them tomorrow, Thursday February 11th at 7 PM at The New School University Center, 63 Fifth Avenue, L105. You can RSVP here
Can't make it? You can still buy the book on Amazon! and a quick walk down the street is
CODED_COUTURE at Pratt Manhattan Gallery
CODED_COUTURE is an exhibition that proposes a new interpretation of couture where coding is the ultimate design tool for creating customized garments and accessories. The works displayed range from forward-looking garments and accessories to video projections, objects, drawings, photographs, and interactive applications that provide the public with greater insights into what the future of fashion may hold. The exhibition, which will open during New York Fashion Week in February 2016, is curated by Ginger Gregg Duggan and Judith Hoos Fox of c2-curatorsquared and features work by 10 international designers. The opening is from 6-8 pm at 144 W 14th Street, 2nd Floor but the exhibit will be up through fashion week.
