In conjunction with Items: Is Fashion Modern?, this event features presenters from a diverse range of perspectives whose often-hidden roles are critical in shaping the contemporary fashion industry. Inspired by Fashion Is Spinach, a well-known book by Elizabeth Hawes published in 1938 and an insider’s critique of the fashion scene, this program provides insight into the ways in which fashion items are designed, manufactured, marketed, distributed, worn, and discarded today, by listening to and engaging with stories from fashion’s silent partners.
A reception and an opportunity to see the exhibition will follow the program.
Tickets for this program will be available beginning September 19. Tickets ($20; $15 members and Corporate members; $5 students, seniors, and staff of other museums) can be purchased online, at the information desk, or at the Film desk on the day of the program.
This event will be live-streamed.
