The Met’s Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion

Art, Fashion, News

I am always on the hunt for a next great exhibition coming up and I finally came a upon a new fashion exhibition! The Metropolitan Museum of Art will be showcasing Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion and it will open Friday, Nov. 18th.

This is a special exhibition because the gowns and clothing on display are designers’ representations of art. I am really excited to see how it is curated and to learn how these designers changed the art world through fashion. I know some people think fashion isn’t an art form, but they are wrong. Fashion is a sector of art and a way to express the culture and world we live today. I am pretty confident that once everyone goes to this exhibition they will have a better understanding as fashion as an art form.

Make sure you attend The Met and the exhibition lasts until Sunday, Feb. 5th.

Eddie Borgo & the iconic Fantasy Bra

Art, Fashion, Videos

Eddie Borgo is on top of the world and I am so happy to see his jewelry will be featured  at this Victoria’s Secret 2016 Paris Fashion Show. However, this time he and his team has created a more dazzling piece, the Fantasy Bra. IT IS STUNNING EVERYONE. LITERALLY…PERFECTION and it was so funny because when I first saw the bra online I did not know who designed it. I was like, “Hmm…that padlock and tassel look so familiar. Almost like Borgo’s.” Then soon enough, it was! To learn more, here is a quick video about the bra and article from VS YouTube Chanel and Vogue.com:

Victoria Secret 2016 Fashion Show

Fashion, Videos

Bright lights are glowing because Monday, Dec. 5, 2016 CBS will be televising the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris. Yes, Paris! It will be the first time the show has been in the City of Light. Every time leading up to the show, I watch Victoria’s Secret Behind-The-Scenes YouTube videos and they are so insightful to watch. For instance, learning how the venue is chosen to model castings is a great way to learn how a fashion show is created and produced.

 

Let the countdown begin and get ready to put on your wings angels!

Check out my school’s newspaper, The Ionian and my past article, Why getting lost in the city is a good thing. Maybe this will change your perspective of going to the city and explore more.

#TBT ACT UP!

Art

I had the opportunity to go visit Washington D.C. last weekend and I was inspired seeing this street art piece in the Newseum. It is a clown-like face terrifyingly screaming, “ACT UP!”  The piece was created on one of the Berlin Wall pieces and the museum displayed the wall as if you were there in the 1960s to late 1980s. However, when I was there, I could feel the horror and separation of the wall. The differences from front and back are like night and day. The “ACT UP!” side had other works surrounding the wall, but in the back was completely blank.

It made me realize how powerful street art has been during that time and how it is influential now. For instance, Bansky‘s street art is similar to this piece because it is thought provoking and a reminder what is going on in society. I believe everyone should visit and see this piece because it was a part of our nation’s history to help Germany win democracy and peace.

Here is the photo below:

I hope you can visit soon, learn about the Wall and its impact on the world.
