Some people were tweeting about it last night, but here's a blog which actually shows some of the clothing on display. Interesting, to say the least:
Greg Lauren - Alterations: New Works on Paper
Greg Lauren - artist, designer and nephew of Ralph has just opened a new and very impressive installation titled Alterations: New Works on Paper. I had the pleasure of attending the opening last night thanks to the stellar Kelly Cutrone and her team at Peoples Revolution.
The event attracted the likes of Gerard Butler, Sante D'Orazio, Elizabeth "Jessie Spano" Berkley, Samantha Mathis and, my personal favorite, the lovely and talented Parker Posey and her dog Gracie. The real star however was the immaculately constructed paper garments on display.
Greg Lauren really brings a new synthesis to art and fashion with his work. Everything from perfectly tailored suits, boho vests, oxford shirts, a boxing robe, a variety of ties and even shoes are constructed out of paper.
There is even a glimpse of what his laboratory for crafting such works of wearable art may look like - a tornado's remnants of newspaper, catalogs, comics, fine Japanese paper, tools, swatches, ropes, garments and sewing materials as the inspirational drawing board and workshop for the perfect paper suit.
The exhibition runs through Nov. 1st at 28 Wooster St. in SoHo, NYC.
