NYU’s Gallatin School presented it’s second fashion show extravaganza featuring ten talented Gallatin designers on February 1, 2012. This fashion show follows their 2010 Gallatin Eco-Fashion Week which successfully launched them into the New York Fashion Week scene.
It is a week before Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week and the atmosphere at Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre of the Performing Arts [located at 1 Washington Place and Broadway in New York City] was electrifying. A wall to wall audience of fashion cogonoscenti, anxiously awaited Sexposed: The Gallatin Fashion Show 2012. The Master of Ceremonies for this show was fashion icon and actress Cheryl Tiegs.
Sexposed explored the themes of “gender identity and gendered roles in fashion.” All the designers presented their creative visions using color, texture, fabric, bold silhouettes, and, all accompanied by their synergetic audio soundtracks. The fashion show was preceded by a short film that highlighted several fashion professionals from jewelry makers to museum curators that presented their views on sensuality, gender identity, and gender roles.
From the 1st look to the last, the designers teased the fashion show attendees imagination with a dramatic presentations of the individual artistry of their fashion creations.
Ms. Tiegs was fashionably dressed as she introduced the eclectic fashion designers, she also announced that her son that was one of the talented models. The designer themes/inspiration ranged from Earth and Beyond to Disingenderous [using masculine items to create feminine looks].
The designers and artists had a reception immediately following the show that was quite a treat. Student art installations were exhibited on the 5th floors of the building as well as the ground floor.
