I love Pulitzer Prize-winning fashion journalist and Washington Post Style Editor, Robin Givhan.
So it grieves me deeply that I have an important class at the same time that she will be speaking at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum (2 East 91st Street) tomorrow (April 1st).
However, you don't have to miss it. She will be speaking on a panel discussion called "Voices of American Fashion" with with past National Design Award Winners Francisco Costa (Women's Creative Director of Calvin Klein Collection), Yeohlee Teng (designer of YEOHLEE), and Maria Cornejo (designer of zero + maria cornejo) about their work and the role of fashion in contemporary culture. Their designs will also be on display from 5:30pm to 6:30pm in Design USA: Contemporary Innovation.
The icing on the cake is that the event is free for students. But even if you're not a textbook-toting fashionista, you can get in for $15 or $10 for seniors/members. Just register here.
Maybe I'll sneak in a glimpse or two on the live webcast here.
