Once again, 10 lucky (and extremely talented) student designers will show off their collections at next week's Spring 2014 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC. If, like us, you'll be stuck in San Francisco, you'll have the chance to view the show in real time via a live webcast. Here, a quick rundown of what to expect, with info on when to tune in.
Shanshan Bai and Winbo Shiau: Inspired by natural curling lines of floral panels and the twisting of sculpted surfaces. Her clothes use a blend of silk gazar, wool, and linen yarn.
Ryan Morar and Melissa Avalos: Inspired by Robert Rauschenberg, Sonic Youth, and Beat Happening albums. Pieces of garments were deconstructed to create new shapes and silhouettes.
If off-the-rack decor is your speed, then you’ve come to the wrong place.
Waiting three years for SFMOMA to reopen will be hard enough, but going that long without my go-to art and design store would mean an uninspired holiday season (the MuseumStore has been my one-stop-shop for gifts three years running now). In the spirit of great pop-ups, SFMOMA has made a temporary home for its shop on Yerba Buena Lane in the old Museum of Craft and Folk Art space across from the Contemporary Jewish Museum. The store, which opened on August 7, was designed to evoke memories of the old space. Think gray- and black-striped columns (a nod to the old museum's atrium), reused wood and materials from the original store, and sustainable bamboo and cork.
