Art + Fashion at A+D = Celebrate: The Wearable

ART + FASHION AT A+D = CELEBRATE: THE WEARABLE -- With music by KCRW DJ Raul Campos spinning in the background, food from Hollywood caterer Scott Roeb, a bar setup by PAMA and IZZE and live auction projections outside on the walls of the nearby Petersen Museum by L.A. Artist Collective (shown above), the event was a bonafide success. More dramatic fashions from Minarc Architects (top left); Syuzi Pakhchyan (bottom right) and architect Eric Corey Freed with his sensational "ClimateWear Daytime Helmet" (bottom left). Be sure to check out the upcoming A+D exhibition "Drylands Design" opening March 22 which will feature work by architects, landscape architects, engineers and urban designers responding to the challenge of water scarcity in the face of climate change -- a compelling show and subject indeed.  But then, that is what the A+D is about: compelling us to think about everything -- from what we wear, to the environment in which we wear it!
