On September 30th local designers teamed up with local galleries to put on a mouthwatering fashion show. Hosted by Future Tenant the show was inspired by the themes of Jill Larson’s group-curated exhibition EAT ME, and served as a tribute to Pittsburgh’s first fashion week.
The garments sent down the runway were made up of a wide variety of food items including cornhusks, marshmallows, and fruit roll ups.
The fashions were modeled by some of the designers, friends, and even Tom Sokolowski, the director of The Andy Warhol Museum. Brett James Salon provided the hair and makeup and Kari Kramer provided the dress forms that held the clothing until the closing of the EAT ME exhibition on October 9. Proceeds from the event benefit the development of future artistic programming.
