Fashion & Travel: Virtual Talk with Stéphane Houy-Towner & Lauren Ezersky
Don your favorite wearable souvenir to join us for this illustrated conversation with fashion historian Stéphane Houy-Towner, and Yonkers native, fashion aficionado, and producer of the groundbreaking TV show “Behind the Velvet Ropes,” Lauren Ezersky, about the treasures and tributes we collect on our travels and how we incorporate them into our wardrobes and personal style, creative cross pollination, and how we buy into global trends.
From long before Paul Poiret, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and contemporary fashion designers the world over, diverse design elements and combinations from our travels have inspired the fashion industry, from haute couture to streetwear. What is the psychology behind the appeal of the “exotic” and the economics of how it is marketed?
Come away ready to create your own ensemble inspired by this discussion, and be transported, as viewers have been through the exhibition Landscape Art & Virtual Travel.
