FREE Fashion Inspired by Art

Fashion and art tend to hold hands, but two fashion designers took the friendship one step further to create Fashion Inspired by Art at the CHC Gallery. The collection is several couture and ready-to-wear pieces based on the paintings at the gallery. The current Marks exhibit is paintings with a lot of layering of textures, which should lend itself well to sculptured clothes. This is a gallery collection for anyone who mimics statue poses in photos.

FREE Lecture about politics and fashion

As the Washington Post’s fashion editor, Robin Givhan is known for calling politicians on their fashion faux pas. She started the widespread terror over then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s awkward V-neck top, criticized Michelle Obama for wearing shorts on vacation, and lambasted Dick Chaney for wearing a giant green coat to a ceremony celebrating the liberation of Auschwitz. Tomorrow night, she’s giving a FREE lecture about how politics and fashion intertwine at the Museum at FIT. Whether or not you agree with Robin’s opinions of style, you have to admit that she’s a badass for being the only fashion writer to win a Pulitzer Prize.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
