Date: August 4, 2017 - September 3, 2017
Event Description:
COMME to Tieton | Comme des Garçons Fashion and Design features work from three decades by Rei Kawakubo’s Comme des Garçons. The fashion designer’s works are currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Kawakubo is only the second living fashion designer to ever have a retrospective there--the first being Yves Saint Laurent in 1983 exhibit. Now you can see her work right here in Tieton! Rei Kawakubo’s avant-garde designs have been highly influential to generations of fashion designers, and they demonstrate art and fashion as one, sometimes privileging one over the other. From the Collection of Cynthea J. Bogel, eleven Kawakubo-designed ensembles, many with shoes, from sculptural to flat, abstract to velvet and lace, will be on display at Mighty Tieton’s newest event space, 617, August 4 through September 3 Friday through Sunday from 12 - 3pm. There will be a reception free and open to the public on August 12 from 12 - 3pm.
