As Four, Puppencouture, 2000 (from New York Fashion Now)
The Spring always brings with it a frenzy of activities in the city. Here are some fashion-related events coming up which we think might be of interest:
The Williamsburg Fashion Show is taking place May 4 through May 6, and features an evening organized by art/fashion boutiques Sodafine and Treehouse. Titled Cherry Blossom Circus and taking place on Friday May 4th around 8pm at Secret Project Robot (10 Kent Ave. at Metropolitan Ave), it includes performances by Feral Childe and a number of other Brooklyn-based designers.
NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program is also staging their end of the year show on May 8 and 9 (5-9pm). Though it’s not specifically a fashion event, it will include an array of projects dealing with the interaction between garments and technology. Under the stewardship of Despina Papadopoulos, who teaches at ITP, the New York community of people experimenting at the brink between fashion and technology seem, in fact, to be in expansion.
Last but not least, there will be an author event at on May 8 (at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore at 227 West 27th Street from 5 to 6:30pm) with Sonnet Stanfill for the catalogue she wrote concomitantly with the exhibit she recently curated at the V&A in London. Currently on view and titled New York Fashion Now, the exhibit and its accompanying catalogue cover the various strands of emerging New York designers. (Among the featured designers is Fashion Projects favorite Mary Ping, along with Three As Four, Cloak, and a great number of others.)
