‘Tis the season for sartorial splendor and the annual fashion conference organized by Initiatives in Art & Culture. This year’s two-day confab, which gets underway on Friday morning at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, has a bespoke vibe. Entitled “One of a Kind: Individuality, Integrity, and Innovation in Fashion,” the conference will consider “iconic individuals and institutions whose contributions–whether in terms of singular designs, entrepreneurial accomplishment, or aesthetic vision–have played critical roles in defining modern fashion” alongside a focus on extraordinary artisans and their materials. Among the speakers lined up for lectures and panels are designers Maria Cornejo and Robert Lee Morris (here’s hoping they sit next to each other and strike up a collaboration!), fashion photographer Deborah Turbeville, Saks Fifth Avenue CEO Stephen Sadove (who can spot an Akris Punto ensemble from 50 paces), Museum at FIT director Valerie Steele, and MAO PR’s Roger and Mauricio Padilha, authors of Antonio Lopez: Fashion Art, Sex, and Disco, recently published by Rizzoli. Best of all, the sharply dressed organizers have customized a discount for UnBeige readers: just enter the code “bistro” at checkout to save $100 off the regular ticket price.
