Artists and fashion designers collaborated last month to create a remix of pre-Halloween fun at PS1 MoMA. A nice and unexpected mix of crowds showed up, especially for the free hair, make-up, and clothes sponsored by a whole chain of brands. My favorite show was the Olaf Breuning X Cynthia Rowley collab. It’s nice to see the entire creative process as the stream of audience moves along. From outfit selection and being dumped with a bucket of paint by Olaf, to being photographed and displayed instantaneously on the walls, to finally reaching the hallway where the painted collection is displayed neatly in a row.

Terrence Koh X Italo Zucchelli did a piece that was quite impressive and deeply mesmerizing. Two lost souls (presumably men) were pacing back and forth butoh-like toward and away from each other infinitely. The single source of light that was piercing through the fog seemed to be feeding life into them. I was hypnotized by a familiarity and could’ve stayed on longer. Organized by V Magazine’s Cecilia Dean and style journalist David Colman, the two-day fashion meets art event was definitely a cool show for all ages, bringing back some of that former school building’s funky flavor.
