In celebration of New York Fashion Week, fashion notables including Refinery29's very own Senior Editor, Kristian Laliberte, were asked by online-art marketplace Artspace (who work to make art accessible to folks like you and me) to curate special collections. Kristian's collection titled "Never Nude" (an Arrested Development reference, perhaps?) is thoughtful, eclectic, and confirms what we always knew about his impeccable taste.
And the Fashion Week celebrations don't end there... This Friday, Artspace (together with Chicago's fabulous fashion store Ikram) will be hosting an invite-only event at the Mondrian Soho rooftop to honor artist, professor, and Chairman of the Graduate Fashion Program at The Art Institute of Chicago, Nick Cave. Over the last decade, Mr. Cave has become known for creating what The New York Times refers to as colorful, extravagant sculptures with a kind of double life—with his works equally able to stand alone in galleries or be worn by dancers as vehicles for sound and movement. Intrigued? Excited? So are we. And with two of Mr. Cave's new works to be introduced at the party, this is one hot event. Of course, we at Refinery29 always take care of our beloved readers, and this time is no exception. Up for grabs are two tickets (for two readers, plus one guest each) to attend Friday's exclusive, invite-only party.
