Eri Wakiyama‘s designs for Visions this Thursday have us up in the air, with whimsical, avant-garde pieces that integrate the music on the program. According to Eri, ‘The clothes I created for Visions are meant to execute a dreamy romantic feeling while not being directly girly. Like a broken down doll type of world.”
To complement Eri’s collection, the amazing menswear designer Edward Lorenz is back with imaginative designs. We can’t give away too much…but for form/FIGURE Lorenz designed some crazy headgear, inspired by the musical savants in Oliver Sacks‘ Musicophilia. We are eager to to see what he’s got brewing!
Get your tickets for Visions here.
A concert where fashion and classical music converge. ‘Visions’ will will take our audience through a dream-like soundscape with music-inspired fashion in a beautiful, intimate venue.
Musicians will don fashion inspired by the music, designed by Edward Lorenz and Eri Wakiyama of Rag and Bone and Comme de Garcons, respectively.
This concert will feature Unsound Grounds performed by the composer himself, Trevor Gureckis, who regularly assists Phillip Glass on major projects. Also on the program are Glass’s Changing Opinion, Liebermann’s rarely performed Piano Trio No. 1, and Takemitsu’s Seasons (aka red and blue graphic score for live improvised percussion with tape!), which premiered in New York just a few months ago.
When fashion and classical music collide, the result is a beautiful visual and aural experience.
Meet and mingle with our artists at the after party- bar TBA!
Musicians: Walter Aparicio, Trevor Gureckis, Sugar Vendil, piano; Patti Kilroy, violin; Rebecca Dragonetti, cello; Amanda Hick, soprano; Jeffrey Eng, Laura Jordan, Frank Tyl, percussion.
