With Palm Springs Modernism Week commencing in a little over three weeks, here’s your last chance to win tickets! Our prize this week is a pair of tickets to the Silver Factory Gala on February 15th (a value of $250). Come and celebrate Andy Warhol’s notorious studio, where decadence and impropriety reigned supreme. For those of you who are new around here, the #ModernismProject is our first-ever mobile initiative encouraging the global community of modernism fans to express visually what modernism means to them. This week’s theme is…..#FASHION.
If you’ve read our recent post on the fashion at Modernism Week, you’ll realize that it’s sort of a big deal. From the parties to the fashion shows, bouffants and glittery gowns are a must. We know that many of you have an amazing collection of vintage pieces in your closet, or perhaps some vintage fashion magazines stashed in the attic. Shoot them all and post them to Instagram – we want to see your fashion inspired photos!
Our special guest judge for this challenge is Brenna Egan from Refinery 29 – a personal style and feel-good online magazine engaging women and sharing with them content, commerce, and community while giving them all the tips, tricks, and tools they need to live a more beautiful life.
“In our cyclical fashion world, if there’s one aesthetic era that designers and stylists reference most, it’s hands-down the Mid-Century. Courrèges, Quant, Twiggy, Edie — what symbolizes freewheeling fun and rebellion more? That kind of revolutionary edge-turned-timeless vibe is something that I don’t believe can ever be replicated. Fashion was always meant to be an art form, and these decades were the first time whimsy worked its way into mainstream with moxie. For that, all I can say, is that I wholeheartedly wish I could have been alive to experience (and wear) it all,” says Egan.
