Art Deco Chic: Talk and Tour with Ivan Sayers & Design Challenge Winners Panel
You may not think it to look at them, but the dresses in the Art Deco Chic come with a wealth of stories. Join guest curator Ivan Sayers for an intimate and in-depth tour, and hear firsthand how the clothing of the 1920s and 1930s differed wildly from previous fashions, the back story on why and how the garments chosen for exhibition, and hear about how some of the most important fashion designers in the world are represented.The garments and accessories on display come from the private collections of Ivan Sayers and Claus Jahnke, as well as from the MOV and other’s collections.
Featured alongside this special Talk and Tour, is a special panel presentation of the Art Deco Design Challenge results. Meet and hear from Design Challenge Winners Elisa Medina, Lisa Ngo, and Dianna Drahanchuk. Over the summer, these three designers were hard at work transforming their designs into garments for display alongside Art Deco Chic. See the finished garments, and hear more about how Vancouver and Art Deco inspired their designs. Join MOV Curator Joan Seidl and Design Challenge judges for a special Q&A discussion about the challenge, and take advantage of this final opportunity to see the exhibition before it closes on September 23, 2012.
