"The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) will present Gothic: Dark Glamour, the first exhibition devoted to the gothic in fashion, from September 5, 2008 through February 21, 2009." "The main gallery space will be designed as a labyrinth, featuring iconic themes such as Night, with black evening dresses; the Ruined Castle, with fashion inspired by gothic images of the Dark Ages, ruins, and fragments; and the Laboratory, where futuristic fashion "monsters" are created." (2008, www.fitnyc.edu)
Gothic Dark Glamour features designs from many other international designers, some included in the show are: Alexander McQueen, Ann Demeulemeester, Comme des Garçons, John Galliano for Christian Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier, Hussein Chalayan, Christian Lacroix, Gareth Pugh, Kei Kagami, Thierry Mugler, Rick Owens, Anna Sui, Olivier Theyskens, Jun Takahashi of Undercover, and Yohji Yamamoto.
Will we see the fashion old guard turning out goth-like Chanel suits for their ladies who lunch? Eek! But it will be exciting to see what Pugh, Theyskens, the amazing Jun Takahashi (Underworld), and the others pull off.
It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com.
I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed.
Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
