I had the pleasure of going to New York to see Pratt's latest exhibition at their 14th St. gallery, Ethics + Aesthetics = Sustainable Fashion. The people were perfectly lovely, the show looked beautiful, the opening was very well attended, there's nothing but good things to say so here are a couple of highlights:
Zoe Sheehan's series called "Shopdropping" is so SMART and funny and brilliant and wonderful and I loved seeing it and meeting her. If you don't know her work already you've got to google her, she's great great great and a serious renegade sewer.
Our project definitely seemed to resonate with the viewers. Several people said they were inspired and moved and relieved by the whole idea/experience of smocking. Apparently I'm not the only one overwhelmed with self-loathing brought out specifically by the daily ritual of deciding what to wear...
Finally I was inundated with love and warmth for Andrea's work. New York is a supportive town filled with eager and interested art lovers who come out to see, hear and learn about all the new ideas people are working on. It's like a giant university where admission truly is based on one criteria alone: the desire to attend.The show is on until February. If you're in the city, don't miss the opportunity to see all the fantastic work:
