WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS FOR THE EVENT NAME.
AND THE SHOW ONLY HAPPENS ONE NIGHT, AND THEN YOU'LL NEVER SEE IT AGAIN.
MAKES SENSE TO ME.
THE OTHER NAMES DON'T HAVE ENOUGH "UMPH!"
COME ON PEOPLE!

I would suggest that you search for "A Pretty Girl is like a Melody" from the Great Ziegfield at http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3ick8_a-pretty-girl-is-like-a-melody-the_shortfilms. This is a GREAT clip from the movie I mentioned in class. The designer is called Adrian (Greenburg). Also I was wondering if you would be interested in searching for the clip of "A Girl for All Seasons" from Grease 2. Perhaps the costumes may interest you... just a thought. You can easily look this video up on google video
I hope this helps
The titles that have survived the elimination round are:

Again, if lightening strikes you, bring in the name or idea next week.
Marketing team, please bring in 1-2 well developed graphics (logo/font/imagery/colors) per team member. Everyone in the class is welcome to develop an idea for next week (based on one of the above names). The images you bring should either be in 81/2 x 11 color print or .jpg format for easy viewing. If you find any images that inspire you, please share these on this here blog!
We will meet at 4pm at the North Avenue Market and head to 2640 from there. Please check the blog and/or your email on Monday to make sure that our plans have not changed.

first year fashion sartorialists from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts - Artesis Hogeskool Antwerpen.This skirt project is called "Denim Dreams" and it takes a fantasy to reality (as much as a fashion school runway van be a reality)
i thought this is very interesting in terms of sculpture and fashion

Check out the myriad performances featured at this year's Performa (happening this week!) There are videos of the performances streaming on the page!
Among some of the highlights:
CRAZY IMAGINED SOVIET FASHION SHOW OF THE FUTURE INSIDE A WOMAN'S SPACE SUIT!!!!
For Performa 09, Polish artist Christian Tomaszewski, in collaboration with video and performance artist Joanna Malinowska, considers how the future was imagined by the Communist regimes of the former Soviet Bloc. “Mother Earth Sister Moon” explores this theme by examining the fashion and style elements related to a diverse range of Eastern Bloc phenomena, including the Soviet space program, sci-fi film and literature of the era, and the cults surrounding the mysterious 1908 explosion over the Tunguska River Valley in central Siberia. This research will manifest itself as a giant reconstruction of the suit worn by the first woman in space—Russian astronaut Valentina Tereshkova—that also pays tribute to the sculpture “Hon-en Katedral” (“She-a Cathedral”), an enormous female figure conceived and built by Niki de Saint Phalle with Jean Tinguely in 1966. Visitors to the sculpture will be able to walk inside it and—at designated “performance” times—view a fashion show, with music by Masami Tomihisa, featuring both reconstructions of actual garments and new designs that evoke the Soviet space program and science-fiction films. In this way, the live show will act as a curated design exhibition in motion.
Acclaimed musician and artist Arto Lindsay (pictured above) will design and organize a multidisciplinary procession, “SOMEWHERE I READ,” featuring over 50 dancers and performers. Serving as Performa 09’s opening event, Lindsay’s procession will proceed down a major street in Manhattan on the same day as the New York Marathon (November 1). A central element of the piece will be the use of cell phones as musical instruments in a sort of pared-down marching band. All the participants will carry cell phones playing music specially composed by Lindsay. An inventive adaptation of the standard parade format, Arto Lindsay’s Performa Commission will create an oddly intimate public spectacle across New York City’s main streets.
Do you want Jenae and I to figure something out with Michelle? If so please write down you concerns/reasons why the crib should be available later and she and I or just I will write Michelle an e-mail. Please bring you reasons to class.
