Very very excited to announce that I’ll be teaming up with Neiman Marcus for a fashion-themed evening of art and inspiration at Phillips after 5 next month. The event is focused on the interplay of inspiration between minimalist painter Robert Ryman and a one Jason Wu. Wu drew inspiration for his Fall 2010 collection for TSE from Ryman’s work – of which neutral colors and materiality are hallmarks – so it makes sense for Wu to explain that for this collection, he wanted to consider TSE’s cashmere as the ultimate canvas (isn’t it, though!).

FASHION COLLECTION BY JASON WU MEETS ITS FINE ART INSPIRATION AT A SPECIAL PHILLIPS AFTER 5

With Neiman Marcus Mazza Gallerie and Project Beltway’s Rachel Cothran

WHEN: Thurs., August 12, 5–8:30 p.m.

WHERE: The Phillips Collection

WHAT: Designer Jason Wu cites Robert Ryman’s paintings as the inspiration for his Fall 2010 TSE cashmere collection. For one evening, models act as living works of art in the Ryman exhibition, bringing Wu’s designs face-to-face with their fine art inspiration. A video of Wu’s fall 2010 ready-to-wear runway show is on view in the café, and a scavenger hunt leads visitors through the museum, collecting fashion and fine art facts for a chance to win prizes. The program is part of Phillips after 5, a lively evening of art and entertainment with food and cash bar.

WHY: In conjunction with Robert Ryman: Variations and Improvisations on view at the Phillips through Sept. 12, 2010

COST: Due to the popularity of Phillips after 5, advance reservations during special exhibitions are encouraged to insure admission: $12 for adults, $10 for visitors 62 and over and students, free for members and visitors 18 and under. Reserve online until 12 hours before the event at www.phillipscollection.org/calendar or 202-387-2151.
