Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

Art to Wear 2009

Mushroom – Kendal Draper modeling for Alyssa McNamara

In case you missed it, there was a fashion last night. The Art to Wear show, hosted by both the College of Design and the College of Textiles, features student designers from both of the colleges. This is probably the sixth or seventh one that I’ve seen and it was easily one of the best – although it would be hard to top last year’s event in the Court of North Carolina in terms of venue. I will say that the lighting in Reynolds Coliseum was much, much better, though. As were my seats. The only downside was that it wasn’t outside – although I could see the benefits of moving it indoors. Nevertheless, I managed to get some great tickets from a friend of mine and we headed down to check out the show. There were 15 designers, from Sophomore to Senior, to Graduate level showing off a myriad of themes, inspiration coming from the White Witch in the Chronicles of Narnia, to the American Dream, French Desserts, and Nesting. Rumor has it that over 5000 people showed up. That rivals the Krispy Kreme Challenge in terms of student-run events! Enough talk, though. Let’s get to the pictures!

This model is walking for Veronica Tibbitts. Her theme was ‘The American Dream’, and she used motifs that embody a conceptual American Dream – denim, patchwork, grain, and farm equipment

My friend Grif was modeling for Veronica Tibbetts, too!

Amy Quinn’s theme was ‘Le Danse des Desserts’ and her clothing was modeled after French desserts

Emily Davidson, modeling for Jessica Roush

James is modeling for Charlotte Guice. Charlotte used only members of her ‘nest’ as models – her brothers, father, mother, boyfriend, and one of her best friends. James is her boyfriend.

There are more pics on my flickr page, but I decided to share my favorites with you guys!
