Fashioned: One Becomes Another

By Lisa Peck, ASID
LuAnne and I recently attended an event at the Anita Sue Kolman Gallery called Fashioned: One Becomes Another. On a Saturday evening the gallery debuted works from Kate Casanova, Nancy MacKenzie and a collaboration between Patrick Kemal Pryor and Christopher Straub.
It was a great event, with great promise so we grabbed our spouses, LuAnne invited friends and off we went. The highlight of the evening was the unveiling of the dresses that were the result of the collaboration between Straub and Kemal Pryor. Kemal Pryor created canvases which Straub ( of Project Runway fame) then cut and made into fashion. That evening we were able to talk with the artists and hear about how they approached the project.
These types of opportunities abound in the Twin Cities. LiLu is sponsoring a film showcase this Thursday where you too could have a chance to speak with some locally grown but nationally known directors. More info on that tomorrow. Don't miss this event! (RSVP)

You can still see this show...without the models at the Anita Sue Kolman Gallery. Details
