Commissioned by Nowness,  Tommy Ton followed Goldwyn to the vintage pop-up marketplace A Current Affair, which she hosted in Los Angeles, in order to capture the adept scout in action—and also snapped her at home, away from the collecting frenzy. “It is super competitive,” Goldwyn says of these events. “I’m like a hawk—there’s no time for chit-chat.” NOWNESS secured a private audience with Goldwyn, who gave us a master class on shopping strategy and revealed why most things come down to sex and history. Interview on the flip and more images here.

Body Unbound: Contemporary Couture from The IMA’s Collection

05 October 2010, 16.46 | Posted in Art, Fashion | 2 comments »

Body Unbound: Contemporary Couture from the IMA’s Collection, on view from April 10, 2010 to January 30, 2011, will examine the many ways designers have manipulated, transformed and liberated the female figure. The exhibition will feature groundbreaking designs by Rudi Gernreich, Issey Miyake, Junya Watanabe, Thierry Mugler, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Gianni Versace and other avant-garde fashion designers. Body Unbound will explore how these designers used modern construction and unexpected materials to contort, conceal, reveal or mock their wearers.

Fashions by visionaries Rudi Gernreich and Jean-Paul Gaultier illustrate how some designers played with the notions of shape and construction, challenging mid-century ideals of form. Examples by Issey Miyake and Junya Watanabe, based on the theories of androgyny and “universal beauty,” demonstrate how Japanese designers working in Paris in the 1980s and 1990s promoted an alternate way of styling the body, concealing its contours and silhouette.Pieces by Thierry Mugler, Gianni Versace and Franco Moschino display how designers utilized innovative textiles and subversive design elements to toy with the concepts of seduction and femininity.

Featuring a range of works, many of which are recent additions to the IMA’s fashion arts collection, Body Unbound will demonstrate how some of the most influential designers of the 20th century helped shape the direction of avant-garde fashion. Organized by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Body Unbound: Contemporary Couture from the IMA’s Collection will be on view in the Paul Textile and Fashion Arts galleries. The IMA will be its sole venue.

Golden Globes: The Tyranny of Meanness

 Golden Globes: The Tyranny of Meanness

Celebrities in attendance at the Golden Globes

For a while I’ve thought that celebrity fashion has been downgraded thanks to the red carpet fashion critics who are now a part of pre-award show programming. Joan Rivers led the charge and unfortunately set a tone that is equal parts cutting, conformist and mean-girl put down, which has every actress out there scared to wear anything more daring than a prom dress–circa 1950.  What’s always baffled me is what exactly qualified her to be a fashion critic? She’s an entertainer last I checked and one whose entire m.o. is celebrating hatefulness.  No doubt she possesses a beautiful art collection, but no one believes that makes her qualified to comment on Picasso. Why is fashion any different? Which is why I think it’s pretty cool that New York Time’s Cathryn Horyn and Vogue’s Andre Leon Tally both had their say on the topic this week. Said ALT, “When you start watching red-carpet shows at 6:00 p.m. and don’t see a stunning dress until 9:00 p.m.—Julianna Margulies’s ruby paillette crepe robe de style with cutouts, by Narciso Rodriguez—it’s sad what passes for style in Hollywood.” Amen, Andre.

People aren’t as stupid or as easily bored as Hollywood thinks. In other words, Cathryn and Andre, if you two had a show commenting on celebrity fashion, one that encouraged creativity and even (gasp) avante garde, me and a bunch of my friends would definitely tune in!
