New York Fashion Week: Men’s, Vegas Date Overlap Causing Angst

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe — make your choice — New York Fashion Week: Men’s or MAGIC.
A shift in dates by Project, the flagship men’s wear trade show of the MAGIC Marketplace in Las Vegas, to a week earlier in February is forcing many brands and retailers to choose between the two events or, in the case of smaller designers, create extra samples in order to have a presence at both.
NYFW: Men’s will run Feb. 4 to 6 in New York City while Project will run Feb. 5 to 7 in Las Vegas.
Already Liberty Fairs and Agenda have had to leave their longtime home at the Sands Convention Center in order to align with Project’s dates and have secured a spot in downtown Las Vegas for their shows.
Sharifa Murdock, co-owner of Liberty, said she’s aiming to deliver a different experience this time. Liberty will be held at the World Market Center, which she described as an “open space with four big tents” that will allow Liberty a clean slate to “create what we want. We’re going to do something brand new,” she said.
That will include “a lot of activations” that will offer a “fresh” take on the trade show scene. “We

Let These Brilliant Lady Puns Wash Away Your Post-Election Angst

What a time to be an artist, right? If you’re not so sure you’re feeling up to making art out of the impending Donald Trump presidency, a punny video starring Sam Corbin offers a case for this approach.

Corbin, the managing editor of Brokelyn as well as a performer, gives a two-minute pep talk in the form of a stream of 50 puns on the names of famous women, urging artists not to give way to fear.

“Our situation may feel Beyoncé-ving right now,” Corbin calmly tells the camera, but “before we Mary Oliver daughters off to Canadians, let’s try something.” Instead, she says, artists should use the challenges they face in the next four years to create thought-provoking art, adding, “We need to feel Frida Kahlo-t injustice in our work right now.”

This pun-packed video addresses a progressive artistic audience that’s been rocked by recent political events. Not only the “Hamilton” cast and the “Saturday Night Live” cast, but writers, artists and performers around the country have expressed feelings of fear, paralysis, and outrage since the election of Trump to the presidency. A common thread in artists’ responses: the hope that their continued creative work will be a force for good in the coming years. 

As Corbin willingly points out, this might be hard, and might result in some bad art. “I should know,” she adds sardonically. “I’m making puns right now.” Nothing wrong with that approach ― especially if you can turn “Mother Teresa” into “It’s going to be hard as a mother to raise a kid under Trump,” or “Gloria Steinem” into “This presidency is going to be the most glorious time to make some radical fucking art.” 

Wow. That’s pun art.
