Power and Fashion

There's an interesting talk tonight in NYC focusing on fashion's influence on culture and how it shapes identity in the world. New York Times writer Guy Trebay will be joined by Isabel Toledo and Gabi Asfour, designers behind the amazing Threeasfour, to discuss the power of fashion. Eugenia Paulicelli, Professor of Italian and Comparative Literature and founder of the Graduate Center's Fashion Studies concentration, will moderate. I really wish I could attend, but I have to do bloody taxes.

Tues, 3/24, 7pm
The CUNY Graduate Center (365 Fifth Avenue at 34th St)
Cost: Free

OMG these clothes are to die for. I saw a lot of head-gloves things over fashion week, but these are the winners by far.
