Dress for Success Lines Up Bruno Magli, Altuzarra, Project Gravitas for Giving Tuesday Initiative

GIVING THANKS: For Giving Tuesday, the nonprofit Dress for Success has rounded up some designer and apparel companies like Bruno Magli, Altuzarra and Project Gravitas to promote its worldwide work.
Committed to helping women reach economic independence, the group has created the #DFSPowerPiece social media campaign and microsite to encourage donations. In addition to the aforementioned three brands, Christian Dior Makeup, Peruvian Connection, Rent the Runway, Sorel and Wander Beauty are involved in this year’s effort. Each is selling an item for the initiative where some of the proceeds will benefit Dress For Success. Magli’s selection is the Gala sued pump, Altuzarra’s pick is the Pencil Skirt and Christian Dior Makeup’s choice is the Ultra Rouge 999 Lipstick.
In years past, the group marked the annual post-Thanksgiving event as “Giving Shoesday,” where people were encouraged to donate shoes to the organization. Chied executive officer Joi Gordon said that this is the first time the group is working with multiple brands that will have dedicated items to help ring up sales for Dress For Success. Some of the participating brands are regular donors to DFS.

Antonio Marras Collaborates With Zanichelli on Artistic Project

ARTISTIC DICTIONARY: In keeping with its effort aimed at raising awareness on the importance of preserving and cultivating the proper use of a language, Zanichelli, the historic publisher of the Italian dictionary, has collaborated with Antonio Marras on a special project.
In particular, the Sardinian visionary designer and artist transformed 16 copies of the Zingarelli dictionary into 16 works of art, which were unveiled on Wednesday with a press conference at the Circolo Marras in Milan.
“When Zanichelli sent me about 30 copies of the dictionary I started looking at them. They were so clean and perfect that I was almost intimidated by them. I really couldn’t understand how to approach this work,” the designer said. “Then I realized that the starting point should have been a sense of pain, desperation, loss…so I kicked off the process.”

Antonio Marras project for Zanichelli

Taking inspiration from iconic women, including dance choreographer Pina Bausch, naturalist Eva Mameli Calvino and Nobel Prize-winner writer Grazia Deledda, Marras created 16 sculptures dedicated to them.
“Since art never comes from happiness, but from torment, who knows torment better than women?,” said art critic Francesca Alfano Miglietti, explaining Marras’ inspiration.

‘Waste No More’ Environmental Project to Debut in the U.S. at Park Avenue Armory

IT ALL ADDS UP: As part of the fashion industry’s ongoing crusade to make sustainability a more palatable subject, the art installation “Waste No More” will be staged at the Park Avenue Armory starting Thursday.
On view through Nov. 12, the environmentally oriented project will be set up in conjunction with The Salon Art + Design. Curated by Li Edelkoort, the show is meant to raise awareness about the mammoth amount of textile waste that consumers contribute to annually and to also show visitors the upsides of the circular economy.
An estimated $ 500 billion worth of clothing that is barely worn and rarely recycled is lost annually. More simply put, the average U.S. citizen throws away 70 pounds of clothing each year. Without any improvement, the fashion industry will use up a quarter of the world’s carbon budget by 2050, according to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
With a name that seems to riff on the theatrical immersion experience, “Sleep No More,” Waste No More will be set up in the reception rooms of the Upper East Side Armory. It is presented by DesignWork, which is part of Renew, an initiative that turns previously owned Eileen Fisher clothing into felted material for fashion, home

Barack and Michelle Obama Are Adapting a Book Critical of Trump for Their First Netflix Project

Former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama‘s first project for Netflix will be an adaption of a scathing book about President Trump‘s administration, The Fifth Risk by Michael Lewis, according to the latest episode of Katie Couric’s podcast.

“ optioned the book to come up with a series for Netflix to help people better understand the government,” Katie Couric said during her interview with Lewis, who broke the news.

In May, the Obamas announced their decision to produce a variety of content for Netflix through their company Higher Ground Productions.

“We hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples,” the former president previously said, according to a Netflix press release, “and help them share their stories with the entire world.”

The Obamas’ adaption of The Fifth Risk will be their first endeavor in a series production. And it will serve as an entertaining and necessary “civics lesson,” explained Lewis, who is the author of other bestselling books that have been adapted to film, like The Big Short and Moneyball.

As with his other books, in The Fifth Risk Lewis informs and entertains readers about topics that can sometimes be considered tedious. During his interview with Couric, he explained how his book delves into what he sees as the huge issues that Trump’s administration is creating across departments in the federal government — issues that Lewis says are endangering the very stability of the country.

Despite Lewis’ condemnation of Trump, a spokesperson for the Obamas’ production company, Higher Ground, said that The Fifth Risk Netflix project would center around the “civic lessons” it presents and not attack Trump, according to The New York Times.

It will be a “humorous series demystifying the little-known ways in which federal agencies improve our lives and serve our nation, from the food we eat to the planes we travel on,” the spokeswoman told the Times.

According to the author, problems in the administration began before and during the transition.

“Most everyone involved with , including Trump, were not prepared to win,” Lewis said. “He had not taken seriously the idea that he had to take over this operation.”

According to Lewis, the new president decided to appoint people into government office based on “appearance,” rather than experience.

As a result, many of the briefings that Obama’s team had prepared “for the better part of a year” to present to the new administration were not even seen, Lewis says. For instance, the Department of Energy would typically show incoming officials how to “manage the nuclear arsenal,” so they can “test atomic weapons without actually blowing one up,” Lewis explained.

“Three months ago, I was still getting briefings from very important people in the government that had never been given because no one had ever showed up to hear it,” Lewis said during the podcast. “It’s just a loss of knowledge. Who can run anything that way? There’s no decent argument for not learning about the thing you need to run.”

Lewis revealed that his book also delves into Trump’s alleged ties with Russia and how that affected his decisions during the transition. Specifically, Lewis addressed Trump’s decision to appoint Michael Flynn as national security adviser, despite then-senior aide Chris Christie’s warnings against the idea. Lewis argued that Flynn’s own ties to Russia are a “plausible explanation” as to why Trump wanted him on his team. (Flynn has since pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his connections with Russian officials.)

“I think had positive reasons for wanting chaos. I think they were friends of his… people who had connections to Russia like Mike Flynn, who he wanted to be able to put in important positions,” Lewis said. “I think thinks he functions better if things are not orderly.. was just kind of attracted to, ‘Let the chips fall where they may.’ ‘I’ll take care of all of this. I’ll decide who is going to be in the cabinet,’ mainly by casting them by appearance.”

Those type of staffing decisions have huge consequences, Lewis argued. The government is being dangerously mismanaged, according to his book. Lewis’ hope is to reframe Americans’ understanding of how government works.

“Trump is a symptom, not just cause here. We don’t elect someone who is so ignorant and negligent unless we have gotten to the point where we so misvalue and misunderstand the thing he’s running,” Lewis told Couric. “If society understood the government, if we all had a good civics lesson, we’d all say that person shouldn’t be running that because it’d be a catastrophe because that enterprise, the government, is really important.”

He continued: “The narrative needs to change first, that’s why I wrote the book… So people stop seeing the government as the problem and start seeing it as a tool, as a solution. If this society is going to survive, it’s got to happen.”

Perry Ellis Supports Hispanic Culture With Cubavera Art Project

Perry Ellis International Inc. took its mind off Thursday’s shareholders’ vote to go private by occupying itself with creative pursuits.   
National Hispanic Heritage Month may have ended Oct. 15, but that hasn’t stopped the company from observing its Latin American roots. Its Cubavera men’s wear brand keeps the party going with a live auction of original commissioned artworks through Nov. 1, within its multifaceted campaign #CubaveraIcons. Three works by Gustavo Novoa, Alexander Mijares and Edward Granger, who previously created custom guayaberas at a live painting event and has collaborated with Hermès and Ralph Lauren, premiered on the brand’s and artists’ web sites and social media channels before their live auction on Paddle8.com.
PEI president and chief executive officer Oscar Feldenkreis said the artists were each chosen for their unique style. “They represent a multicultural mix, again in line with the Cubavera brand, which has translated across demographics and has grown into a staple for a multicultural and multigenerational consumer,” he said.
The only parameters for the artists were to draw inspiration from the collection. Novoa zeroed in on its signature prints and PEI’s home base in Miami with a painting of Florida panthers primping in tropical shirts. Titled the Front Runners, his work starts at $ 3,500

‘Project Runway All-Star’ Helen Castillo Designs Jumpsuit for Blue Man Group

DOWNTOWN BLUES: For the first time in 27 years, the Blue Man Group is adding a new item to their wardrobe. “Project Runway All-Star” Helen Castillo has created a jumpsuit for the three performance artists and, unlike their stage makeup, the design is not entirely blue.
Raised in New York, the designer attended an arts magnet middle school and subsequently saw her share of traditional Broadway shows. “Kids at school would always boast about their parents or the ‘cool aunt’ taking them to see this show. I grew up knowing it [BMG] as a household name. When I was invited to see a night showing of BMG, I couldn’t believe how close it was to St. Marks Place, where I hung out as a teenager getting my first tattoo and piercings,” she said. “It was refreshing to know there’s still an authentic New York tradition being maintained at Astor Place Theatre.”
Seen by 35 million people worldwide, the show is relatable to Castillo, who likes getting creative, messy and having fun. “Typically, I am inspired by paintings or art movements, so this opportunity was a stroke of fate.

Artist Mirabelle Marden Installs ‘Garage Sale’ Retail Project

Mirabelle Marden, an artist by practice, trade and lineage, continues to toy with nostalgic elements of the retail experience.
Today she will reveal a new shoppable installation, “Garage Sale,” inside her gallery Plain Pleasures, which is located on the second floor of an unnamed Chinatown mall in Manhattan. Over the last two years, the two-story building at 75 East Broadway has evolved into a nexus for experimental retail, spearheaded by artists, designers and thinkers.
Marden opened her first effort there, called Plain Pleasures Market in December — setting a colorful holiday souk stuffed with traveled souvenirs, friends’ craftworks and vintage odds and ends. In the months since, her mall space has become a revolving door of art shows and guest pop-up shops from friends like Stella Schnabel.
For Marden, keeping store at Plain Pleasures is about replicating travel experiences and “creating an environment. I’m making an expression of how I see things. Whenever I go somewhere I like to look at the markets and everyday stores — they let you experience a place.”
Garage Sale will include items sourced and rummaged on trips to Lisbon, Nevis, Marrakesh, Mexico City and Paris. “I wanted it to look like a storage space, I hung up old

Rag & Bone Supports Project CAT With Limited-Edition T-shirt

Rag & Bone has once again partnered with Discovery to support Project CAT, an initiative designed to help preserve and protect tigers in the wild.
The men’s and women’s sportswear company has designed a limited-edition unisex T-shirt in collaboration with graphic artist Boy Kong, which is being sold on rag-bone.com for $ 95 and will be available in select Rag & Bone stores.
Kong, a native of Orlando, Fla., is a self-taught painter, illustrator, muralist and collage artist. He was inspired by a mixture of Ukiyo-e, Surrealism, graffiti art and animal folklore in designing the T-shirt. He recently contributed a custom 3-D art installation displayed in Rag & Bone’s Design District store in Miami.
There are fewer than 4,000 tigers left in the wild due to habitat loss and illegal poaching. Project CAT’s aim is to improve resources for security measures in the wild, increase monitoring of tiger populations, maintain land corridors to improve connectivity for wildlife movement, and implement measures to reduce wildlife conflict.
Followers of Rag & Bone are encouraged to take a selfie wearing the T-shirt and use the hashtag #projectcat when posting to their social media in the lead up to Global Tiger Day on July 29.

THE ARCHIVE COMES ALIVE: Yoox Net-a-porter is investing in education and the younger generations through a partnership with Bloomsbury Publishing that will make rare fashion-show footage available to the educational market.
YNAP has worked with Bloomsbury to digitize its runway archive collection between 1979 and 2003, before shows were automatically digitized. The result is more than 3,000 videos and hundreds of hours of footage that offer a window into fashion history and a new way for students to examine the evolution of the catwalk over the years, key collections and individual designers’ work.

Sync Performance Launches ‘Elevate the Athlete’ Project to Enable Shoppers to Support Emerging Athletes

COMPLETE SNOW JOBS: Internationally renowned athletes can really break the bank, as Floyd Mayweather can attest with $ 275 million in salary/winnings and $ 10 million in endorsements.
The quick-footed fighter tops the 2018 Forbes List of The World’s Highest Paid Athletes with Argentina’s leading soccer player Lionel Messi ranking second with $ 84 million and $ 27 million in endorsements.

Prada Launches ‘Nylon Farm’ Video Project

NYLON PROTOCOL: Prada has launched a video project in four episodes focusing on its signature nylon fabric.
Dubbed “Nylon Farm” and filmed at the company’s industrial headquarters in Valvigna, Tuscany, the story aims to convey the brand’s blend of heritage, technological innovation and creativity through a futuristic fairy tale.
In the short videos, the Prada farm is populated with flocks of cyborg “nylon sheep” — a nod to science fiction and American writer Philip K. Dick. The sheep’s synthetic fleece is harvested via an alternate reality technology and woven into Prada’s signature nylon under the supervision of futuristic IT systems.

The “Giacomo Leopardi” middle school, which will accommodate more than 100 students, has been built in only five months using the most innovative technologies to make it quake-proof and sustainable.
The complex will feature a range of facilities, including a gym, a library, an auditorium, a computer center and a music studio, which will be also open to the local community.

Tracy Reese Teams With Artist Mel Chin for Art Project Designed to Raise Awareness of Flint’s Water Crisis

EVERY LAST DROP: Conceptual artist Mel Chin recruited Tracy Reese to create a fashion element for his retrospective “All Over the Place” at the Queens Museum in New York.
Coproduced by the public art-focused nonprofit No Longer Empty, the exhibition will feature 70-plus examples of his work — drawings, paintings, sculpture, installations and videos. Running through Aug. 7, the multilocation show will include sites in Times Square and the Broadway-Lafayette subway station. Adept at revealing environmental and socioeconomic systems and injustices, Chin recruited the Detroit-born Reese for “Flint Fit,” a fashion project designed to magnify the water crisis in Flint, Mich.
At Chin’s suggestion, 90,000 used water bottles were collected by Flint residents, who continue to use bottled water for everyday purposes more than three years after lead-contaminated water became a citywide problem. Once shipped to Unifi in Greensboro, N.C., the bottles were shredded and converted into fabric. Reese then designed a water-inspired collection that included rainwear and swimwear. About 14 women at the St. Luke N.E.W. Center produced the nine looks, which will be unveiled in a fashion event Sunday in the museum’s Watershed Gallery.

This was the disconcerting backdrop for the reveal of Diesel Red Tag Project, a series of collaborations with edgy designers on a set of capsule collections. First up, Hood By Air’s Shayne Oliver, who was behind the bizarre wording, the staging and the clothes presented.
“No one is intrigued by fashion shows anymore, because we are so used to looking at them from this scope,” said Oliver backstage, where the decibels were more manageable. “Designers do so much work, and you look at it on a runway and it’s so blah, blah, blah,” he continued.
On a hiatus from Hood By Air, Oliver is working on a series of collaborations, including a special collection for Helmut Lang that launched last September.
“I’m basically working with masters of crafts, I’m working with Diesel and I have others coming. It’s going back to school, because I never went to fashion school,” Oliver explained. “I created my fashion silhouettes

Project Elevates Partnership With NYFW: Men’s

Project continued to make its presence known at New York Fashion Week: Men’s by hosting a presentation for Michael Bastian, W.R.K., Faherty and M. Singer, four brands that often show within the Tents, the designer section of the trade show.
Project also hosted several other labels during the morning and afternoon sessions of New York Men’s Day.
Tommy Fazio, men’s fashion director of UBM Fashion, who hand-selected each brand, said this is the latest initiative in the company’s move to support American talent. It’s also an evolution of UBM Fashion’s new partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America that promotes the growth of emerging talent and the fashion industry as a whole.
“We are thrilled to have the platform outside of the trade-show floor in New York to champion men’s wear talent who represent the best of American designers. Having had the privilege of working with each designer at Project, we are excited to assist in presenting their fall 2018 collections by supporting CFDA’s NYFW: Men’s and NYMD,” Fazio said.

Moncler Launches Charity Project with UNICEF

WARM HEART: Moncler has partnered with UNICEF – the United Nations international children’s emergency fund, – to launch a charity project. Named “Warmly Moncler For UNICEF,” the initiative aims to provide clothes and survival kits to children and families in need who live in areas around the world with harsh winter weather conditions.
In particular, the outerwear specialist and the charity association – which operates in 192 countries, – will provide thermal blankets, hats, gloves, scarves, socks and shoes, in addition to fuel to warm up homes and schools. Clean water, food and medicines will be also included in the survival kits.
Previously, Moncler supported children in need by funding the Child Priority Foundation. For the occasion, the brand launched the “Moncler Toy” initiative, which combined art and fashion.
A quirky version of the brand’s iconic cartoonish duck that imparts washing instructions inside all of Moncler’s jackets was molded from glass resin with a three-dimensional effect. The statue was then handed over to British artist Stuart Semple, who manually reproduced a mountain scene onto the duck in black and white, and auctioned it off.
Established in Grenoble, France, in 1952, Moncler was acquired by Italian entrepreneur Remo Ruffini in 2003 and is publicly listed

‘Prada Silver Line’ Retail Project Presented in Macau

PRADA TRAIN TRIP: Prada is hopping on a train this holiday season.
The brand unveiled an itinerant retail project in Macau’s Galaxy shopping mall on Dec. 15, named “Prada Silver Line,” installed until Jan. 14.
To mark the project, the brand delivered a range of products, including women’s bags and accessories, exclusively available at the Macau destination. In particular, the Prada Cahier bag is reinterpreted in three new styles made of exotic leathers.
A different selection of items will be developed for each future city of the itinerant retail space.
The pop-up re-creates an illuminated train platform reminiscent of those of the American Streamliners — the high-speed railway train sets of the Thirties to Fifties.
The imaginary railway station includes a train’s coach with a metal outer shell, which houses the products’ main display space. Floral-patterned red silk brocade tapestry and black-and-white marble checkered flooring, which appears in all the brand’s boutiques, embellish the space.

Gucci Places Project Expanded

THIS MUST BE THE PLACE: Gucci’s globe keeps spinning as the fashion label has expanded its Gucci Places project to include six new cities to promote.
First unveiled in July, the initiative aims to invite people to explore international locations that are inspirational for the Florence-based fashion house, creating a worldwide community.
The first Gucci Place was Chatsworth in Derbyshire, England, where the brand supported the “House Style” exhibition of clothing and memorabilia from the past 500 years, in addition to setting its cruise 2017 advertising campaign lensed by Glen Luchford.
Each reflecting the taste and an inspiration for the brand, the new locations are Italy’s Biblioteca Angelica library and Castello Sonnino castle, situated in Rome and Tuscany’s Montespertoli, respectively; Maison Assouline in London; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art — or LACMA; the Bibo restaurant in Hong Kong, and the Waltz store in Tokyo.

M1992 to Guest as Special Project at Pitti Uomo

MILAN — Italian designer Dorian Stefano Tarantini is changing the name of his brand Malibu 1992 into M1992. The new moniker will make its debut during the upcoming edition of Pitti Uomo, running Jan. 9 to 12 in Florence.
“It’s not such a radical change,” said Tarantini, addressing his will to “polish, simplify the name and have a more neutral [starting point]” for his creative process.
“Malibu [1992] tied me too much to the city of Malibu and California, which will remain part of my [inspirations], but I preferred to shorten the name also because M is the initial of Malibu but also of Milan, which is my city,” he added. The designer further stressed the importance of having a “code name, which opens to more possibilities” and of “characterizing the brand with my products and collections,” rather than with a name.
Launched almost four years ago as an artistic, 30-minute video project, Malibu 1992 evolved into a fashion brand combining Tarantini’s tornado of inspirations, ranging from music to neoclassicism, from punk to Californian luxury.
After two seasons of runway shows in Milan, the brand will unveil its new name and fashion course in Florence, as it has been selected as a special project

Belstaff Teams With the Bloodhound Project on Jacket and Sunglasses

NEED FOR SPEED: Belstaff has teamed with The Bloodhound Project on a limited-edition jacket and sunglasses.
The Bloodhound Project is aimed at building a car that can set a new World Land Speed record of 1,000 miles an hour. The Bloodhound SSC, in development since 2008, is a supersonic machine comprised of a Formula One car, jet and spaceship. It has been designed with a jet engine and a rocket.
It is set to make its first run in public at Cornwall Airport Newquay in England on Thursday and will be driven by Andy Green, the current land speed record holder, who set a world record in October 1997 where he and his Thrust SSC team traveled at 763.035 mph.
“Andy and the team are exposed to extreme conditions including sun, heat and sand,” said Belstaff’s creative director Delphine Ninous. “We had to look to create a UV-protective material that is breathable and durable, with low flammability. The fabric is a double-sided stretch cotton ensuring ease of movement. The sunglasses we developed with Imatta to ensure they are protective for the extreme desert conditions, with technologically advanced lenses.”
The four-pocket jacket features a stand-up collar, reflective detailing and a hidden orange hood. There is also a

The Family Behind Weatherproof Launches The Very Warm Project

Cousins Shai and David Peyser are helping their family, which owns outerwear brand Weatherproof, establish a bigger presence in the contemporary category.
They have partnered to introduce The Very Warm, a men’s and women’s outerwear line that will launch for fall. Each season, the brand will partner with artists to incorporate one-of-a-kind artwork into its products.
“I came into the business a couple of years ago and we decided to do something that was art inspired,” Shai Peyser said. “We wanted to start a conversation with outerwear and a way to do that is with the lining. I personally have a love for art and street art so we are incorporating that into the lining.”
For the first season, The Very Warm has tapped artists Trav, Jasper Wong, Morgan Lappin and Caleb Troy to create pieces for the lining. The collection includes coach jackets, reversible bombers and quilted parkas and retails from $ 189 to $ 375.
The line is being sold at Nordstrom, and beginning in October, the brand will host a three-month pop-up shop within Odin’s SoHo location in New York. The pop-up will include events every few weeks hosted by artists who have collaborated with the brand.

People Are Loving Project Runway’s Decision to Use Models up to Size 22

Project Runway made a major change this season by including models of all sizes, and Twitter can’t get enough of it.

On Thursday, season 16 of the popular fashion competition series premiered on Lifetime and came with a major twist for designers: Rather than spending all season working with more traditional fashion models, the team would be working with models with a range of body types – from size 2 to 22.

“I believe we should have done already years and years and years ago,” Klum told Entertainment Tonight ahead of the premiere, “So I’m happy though that now this season, we’re starting.”

“This is the real world. Not everyone is, you know, runway figure or what the runway figure used to be,” she added. “You have to dress real people, and real people come in different sizes: short, tall, more voluptuous, skinny. There is many of us, and so a real designer needs to know how to do that. So get with it.”

The designers appeared to be excited about the switch (even if it did throw them off a bit). But users on Twitter were all-around supportive, praising the show for embracing a wider view of the industry.

“I’m so proud that Project Runway is finally doing this,” wrote one user. “Should have been done many years ago. Lovin’ it!!!!!! #loveprojectrunway.”

“Yasss to Project Runway for including so many different types of models and designers!!” tweeted another.

While this is the first time that  Project Runway is requiring designers to use models of different sizes, it’s not the only time that a clothing collection from the television show went beyond the traditional “runway figure” size.

Season 14 winner, Ashley Nell Tipton, designed her final collection for curvy women.

“This was the opportunity that I was given to showcase who I really am as a designer,” Tipton told PEOPLE at the time. “I had to show that this is what I design, and this is what I know.”

Heidi Klum Says the Project Runway Designers ‘Weren’t Too Happy’ About Dressing Models of All Sizes

Project Runway is making a big change this season by including models of all sizes, but Heidi Klum says the designers weren’t all thrilled.

“They kind of went like this, ‘Ah?’ ” Klum, 44, tells Entertainment Tonight, while making a displeased face. “A lot of them actually weren’t too happy about it.”

The supermodel and host points out that the designers need to be realistic about who they’re dressing.

“This is the real world. Not everyone is, you know, runway figure or what the runway figure used to be,” she says. “You have to dress real people, and real people come in different sizes: short, tall, more voluptuous, skinny. There is many of us, and so a real designer needs to know how to do that. So get with it.”

And Klum says she’s been wanting to include models of different sizes on the show.

“I believe we should have done already years and years and years ago. So I’m happy though that now this season, we’re starting,” she says.

While Project Runway hasn’t required all of the designers to use models of different sizes before, the season 14 winner, Ashley Nell Tipton, designed her final collection for curvy women.

“This was the opportunity that I was given to showcase who I really am as a designer,” Tipton told PEOPLE at the time. “I had to show that this is what I design, and this is what I know.”

Tommy Fazio, fashion director for UBM Fashion Group, Project’s parent, said the event was intended to illustrate the trade show’s “continued support for young designers.”
By showcasing models sporting Faherty, WRK, Thaddeus O’Neil, Michael Bastian and M Singer, guests were able to get up close and personal to the collections as they sipped cocktails and munched on spiked ice pops.
“I’m a big fan of touch and feel,” Fazio said, “instead of a runway. This is a more intimate environment — and it’s more fun. It allows the lines to come to life and tell the story.”
Matthew Singer of M Singer said the venue was “amazing” for his first official men’s presentation. “Project is so nurturing to its brands so I was happy to join.”

The Cadogan Estate’s Chelsea in Bloom Project Continues to Create Buzz

FLOWER POWER: One of central London’s largest property owners has been capitalizing on the annual Chelsea Flower Show to promote retail in the neighborhood. The Cadogan Estate — which looks after properties throughout Chelsea and Knightsbridge — said its Chelsea in Bloom Retail initiative has been drawing increasing footfall — and greater attention — to the neighborhood.
This year’s initiative saw 50 West London retailers take part, mounting floral displays around the time of the Chelsea Flower Show, which wrapped up last weekend. The five-day flower show, the most important in the U.K., is hosted by the Royal Horticultural Society and held at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
The Cadogan Estate’s initiative saw elaborate floral decorations on storefronts, life-sized African animal installations, floral rickshaw rides, in-store offers, events and floral-inspired menus and promotions.
Hugh Seaborn, chief executive officer at the Cadogan Estate, said the event typically had about 30 businesses taking part, but saw the number rise to 50 this year, with footfall in Chelsea up 24 percent last week during the flower show.
“It is so important to support brick-and-mortar stores at the moment because the online experience is growing faster than brick-and-mortar sales,” said Seaborn. “We allow retailers to showcase their retail proposition

L.A. Dance Project Partners With Ermenegildo Zegna Couture for Marfa Performances

ZEGNA SUITS UP DANCERS: L.A. Dance Project’s founder and artistic director Benjamin Millepied used his artistic vision to help dancers make an impression at Marfa.
For the troupe’s “Marfa Dance Episodes” last weekend in Marfa, Tex., all of the dancers wore Ermenegildo Zegna Couture custom-designed looks by artistic director Alessandro Sartori. He flew in for the performances, which were hosted by the Donald Judd-started Chinati Foundation and featured a series of live-streamed events, which were inspired by Chinati’s art collection.
The collaboration for the dancers’ fluid wardrobes stemmed from Sartori’s interest in the arts and his eagerness to partner with his friend Millepied. The duo decided to go with lightweight fabrics in a range of muted colors such as concrete gray, white, indigo blue and camel. To help keep the dancers in motion, they wore exclusive blends of silk and jersey that were meant to relay modern design. During his tenure with the LADP, Millepied has called in a range of talent for select projects including John Baldessari and Christian Lacroix for new sets, and Karl Lagerfeld, Gareth Pugh, Mary Katrantzou and Iris Van Herpen for new costumes.

Project Womens, Coeur to Launch Home, Gift Market

RETAIL REINVENTION: Project Womens is on board with the lifestyle trend at retail, with a new concept set to debut on its show floor in August focused on home and giftable items.
The Coeur x Project Womens space is set to feature items from between 20 and 30 brands focused around apothecary, home, tech accessories and giftable items.
“We really feel that the retailers are looking for an added value for some lifestyle and gift items so Coeur was the perfect partner for us to launch this new concept area,” saidProject Womens vice president Kelly Helfman. “It’s just really where retail’s looking right now to add that sort of product to their everyday retail apparel stores, and so we listened to our buyers that are walking our show.”
Capri Blue, Lux/Eros, Los Poblanos and Esselle are among the brands confirmed to show in this new space.
A special buildout in the center of this marketplace, which will total about 3,000 square feet, will show retailers how the product can be incorporated in with their ready-to-wear and accessories within stores.
“It’s really a lot of point-of-purchase items, but I think it’s more about not just carrying these sorts of items near the register,” Helfman said.

‘Kaur Project’ Captures The Beautiful Diversity Among Sikh Women

Many women who identify as Sikh share at least one thing in common: The name Kaur. It may be a middle or last name, and it isn’t always how they’re identified legally. But it’s a part of their heritage that dates back centuries and something many Sikh women share.

Saji Kaur Sahota and Jessie Kaur Lehail, a photographer-writer duo from British Columbia, Canada, are asking Sikh women what being a Kaur means to them. Their series, called the “Kaur Project,” aims to highlight this common heritage while celebrating the diversity of the women’s experiences. 

“We have seen a lot of feminist theory incorporated into mainstream media, but there’s been nothing specifically for and about Sikh women,” Lehail, the writer behind the project, told The Huffington Post. “So we thought why not create something ourselves.”

Lehail and Sahota decided the only parameter for the project would be that the women must identify as Sikh and use the name Kaur. Thus far all the women featured in the project are in the B.C. area, though Lehail said they’re hoping to expand to other areas in the near future.

For every woman featured in the “Kaur Project,” Sahota does a photo shoot and Lehail conducts a 20-minute phone interview. The benefit of talking over the phone, the writer said, is that it allows the women to share things they might not otherwise share in person.

Lehail asks two simple questions: “How do you identify yourself as a Kaur” and “What has your journey been so far.” The women take their answers in many different directions, addressing topics like marriage, divorce, having children, losing children, struggling with depression or abuse, managing relationships with parents and in-laws and balancing all the many roles life places on them.

Some of the themes of the interviews are specific to Sikh or immigrant communities, Lehail said, “but a lot of what’s discussed is applicable to any community and almost all women.”

It also became clear to Lehail that being a Kaur can mean different things to different people. Like Kaur for women, Singh is given to many Sikh men as a middle or last name. The naming tradition began in the 17th century as a way to resist the caste system, in which a person’s name indicated their status in society. The names Kaur and Singh act as equalizers, reminding all Sikhs of the inherent equality of all human beings.

But framing the project around Sikh identity can be tricky, Lehail admitted, partly because Sikh identity isn’t homogenous. Some Sikhs are baptized, for instance, in what’s called an “Amrit ceremony.” After this, they take on new names and commit to upholding rules of dress, including keeping their hair uncut. Some Sikh men and women also wear turbans, an item once worn only by royalty in South Asia and which has become a symbol of equality in the faith.

But not all Sikhs practice these traditions. “We didn’t want to limit the project to just females who are Sikhs who wear turbans because Saji and I both have cut hair,” Lehail said. “We believe in the religion, but there are variations to how it’s practiced.”

Across the 60 women who Lehail and Sahota have featured so far, those variations are clear. “It’s a learning opportunity for the mainstream about Sikhism and Sikh women,” she said. “But also for Sikh women to learn about themselves.”

Check out some of the photos and stories from the “Kaur Project” below:

MRket To Be Merged Into Project in Las Vegas

Don’t look for the MRket show in Las Vegas next month. It’s being merged into Project.
UBM PLC, parent company of Project, acquired Business Journals Inc., MRket’s former parent company, last April and has been working to combine the shows. Last August, MRket left its longtime home at the Sands Convention Center to join Project at Mandalay Bay.
In New York this week, MRket and Project showed under one roof at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. There were signs hanging from the ceiling designating which rows were MRket and which were Project, but it was not obvious where one show began and the other ended.
“We found there is a lot of duplication of product categories at the August shows,” said Lizette Chin, vice president of men’s wear for MRket. “So we’re foregoing MRket and rolling it into Project.”
She said the brands will instead be showcased in areas separated by category, such as tailored clothing, sportswear, Vanguards Gallery (for new and emerging brands), outerwear, California lifestyle and Move (for activewear labels). The Tents at Project, which house designer brands, will be a separate section as well.
“The whole point of our merger was to unify,” Chin said. But she said the MRket banner will

Luis Valenzuela Heads to Art Wynwood With Cuban-Inspired Art, Starting New Project for the Blind

NEXT STOP, CUBA: For the sixth edition of the upcoming Art Wynwood, eco-friendly fashion designer Luis Valenzuela has created pieces inspired by Cuban artist Cundo Bermúdez. A few of the turbans and dresses are reminiscent of shapes and silhouettes from Bermúdez’s work including the 1995 oil on canvas “Lady Sitting at the Table.” Cernuda Arte is hosting a panel discussion in conjunction with the Coral Gables Museum highlighting the museum exhibit “Cuban Art in the 20th Century: Cultural Identity and the International Avant-Garde,” which bows Jan. 21 and runs through April 23. There will also be a special Cuban art exhibit at the fair.
At the opening night preview, models will be on hand wearing the dresses and turbans Valenzuela has designed. If any of the VIP guests (or any other art fans) decide they need to add his dresses to their closets, they will have the option to buy these unique pieces in his booth at Art Wynwood. The show runs Feb. 16-20. The street artist and Obey clothing founder Shepard Fairey will be in town to pick up the Tony Goldman Lifetime Achievement Award.
Unrelated to the upcoming show, Valenzuela is creating small-scale 3-D replicas of well-known museum art pieces

Goosebumps Author R.L. Stine’s Marvel Project Revealed

R.L. Stine, perhaps best known as the author of the Goosebumps series of horror books, will write the upcoming return of Marvel’s Man-Thing.

The run, which begins in March, will span 5 issues. Stine told the New York Times working on comics has been a life-long dream.

“My first ambition was to be a comic book artist,” the author said.

Covers for the new series, done by horror-comic artist Tyler Crook, will be inspired by classic horror comics of the 1950s. Stine told the Times he’s a big fan of those older books.

“I think they’ve been a major influence in everything I’ve done since,” he said.

Mating the Beast (Project Loup Garou, #2)

Mating the Beast (Project Loup Garou, #2)


Captured and mutated, his memories of his past wiped away, Subject Number One clings only to the scent of his fated mate, caught only in whiffs in the facility where he and his wolf brothers are held prisoner. If he could only reach her, touch her, he could complete the mating bond and escape. But who would mate with a monster? Wracked with guilt, Dr. Michelle Dimaano swallows her loathing for her job and her employers and the terrible things they do in the facility where she works. She’s free to leave, but at the cost of her memory. The only thing she lives for is the overwhelming curiosity she holds towards the magnetic wolfman, Subject Number One. However, when she gets a little too close to him, he hurts her. Can she overcome her fear and choose a life of danger and her fated werewolf mate, or will she go back to the world of men and leave her monstrous lover behind? Mating the Beast is a 36,000 word stand-alone novella featuring a cool, collected beast, a trapped beauty, knotting, monster sex, and the defloration of a virgin! 18+ only please! It is the second in the Project Loup Garou series. EXCERPT: Huge muscled arms came around her as she inhaled deeply, letting the musk of his fur fill her lungs. The woody wildness of him made her pussy ache, made her mouth water. She had no idea what he had in store for her-she only knew that she wanted it, badly. Restless hands, blunted fingers, sharp claws relentlessly roamed her body, scratching through her clothes, catching on fabric, only this time there was no barrier between them, no bars keeping him from ripping through her clothes, which was exactly what he did. First, however, he hauled her to her feet, drawing her away from the flimsy cot, and half-carried, half-dragged her to the pile of blankets at the back of the cell, probably left there by one of the interns taking pity on her.

Is The Broad a Great Public Collection or “The Largest Vanity Project of Our Lifetime”?

Eli and Edye’s Gift to Los Angeles: The Broad Museum

“I have always worked on a public collection,” said Joanne Heyler, Chief Curator of The Broad Art Foundation and Founding Director of The Broad, to an assembly of international, national, and local media gathered in front of the much-anticipated new contemporary art museum and permanent home of the art collection of Eli and Edythe Broad a few days before its opening. Heyler has been with the Broads since almost the beginning, working with them for over 20 years to develop the collection and their philanthropic projects, culminating with the establishment of the impressive Broad museum. Heyler’s emphasis of the word “public,” however, might seem curious, considering that the collection belongs to just two people. But, as Heyler explained, the idea of “the public” is crucial to the museum’s mission of reaching the widest possible audience for its collection of contemporary art, and to that end, The Broad, situated in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, offers free admission. “This is Eli and Edye’s gift to Los Angeles,” Heyler stated proudly.

The practical matters of opening the collection to the widest possible audience, however, extend beyond the borders of Los Angeles. The Broad Art Foundation, which was founded in 1984, was established as a lending program, making the collection’s works available to museums and galleries worldwide. Over 8,000 loans have gone out to more than 500 museums and galleries over that period of 30 years. Now that the Broads’ collection has coalesced under the roof of the new museum, this dedication to lending will continue as a primary function of the museum, and has even been built into the building’s design.

The building, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, is predicated on the concept of “the veil and the vault”: the vault being The Broad’s large storage area for the collection, taking up most of the museum’s second floor; the veil, a porous exterior structure forming a diaphanous cover over the interior vault, allows a diffuse natural light to penetrate the 50,000 square feet of exhibition spaces, located on the first and third floors. Approaching the museum from the street, the visitor is essentially invited under the veil, into a cavernous space with the grey mass of the vault hovering overhead. A pod-like elevator, stairway, and long ascending escalator pierce the vault’s interior, allowing the visitor to pass through it, and, from windows in the stairwell, offering an unprecedented glimpse into the inner workings of the museum. As lead architect Elizabeth Diller pointed out, the design “turned a liability into an asset,” transforming the usually hidden storage area into a main attraction.

Installation of works by Christopher Wool and Jeff Koons in The Broad’s third-floor galleries. Courtesy of The Broad and Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Photo: Bruce Damonte.

In the expansive space of the third floor galleries, the viewer is initially greeted by a large open space, full of diffuse filtered natural light, surrounded by massive works by Jeff Koons, Christopher Wool, Mark Bradford, Marlene Dumas, Julie Mehretu, and El Anatsui. For The Broad’s first hang, Heyler took a “straightforward, wide-lens, chronological approach,” beginning with a room devoted to Warhol, whose Pop-Art presence is felt throughout the collection. Standouts of the inaugural exhibition include an eye-popping enclave of Ellsworth Kelly works; Anselm Kiefer‘s historic epic Deutschlands Geisteshelden (1973), whose evocations of receding woodgrain are echoed in a Mike Kelley piece (Infinite Expansion, 1983) on the opposite end of the museum; and alternately, life-like and imposing human figures by John Ahearn and Charles Ray. Areas of darker subject matter contrast with the Pop influences–animal bones in glass cases and a dead sheep suspended in formaldehyde by Damien Hirst share a room with a photograph of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange by Andreas Gursky, evoking themes of death and despair, interrupted by the obligatory inclusion of one of Hirst’s spot paintings. Works by certain artists, particularly John Baldessari, Cy Twombly, and Jeff Koons, recur to a great extent throughout the museum.

Installation of works by Neo Rauch, Robert Longo and Mark Bradford in The Broad’s first-floor galleries. Courtesy of The Broad and Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Photo: Bruce Damonte.

What emerges from the Broad collection is largely a paean to painting and sculpture, a majority, unavoidably it seems, devoted to male artists. This tendency is somewhat disrupted by the inclusion of some major installations on the first floor: a wool tapestry by Polish artist Goshka Macuga, complemented by two performers clad in the artist’s digital-printed Lycra designs; a powerful and elegiac musical video installation by Ragnar Kjartansson (The Visitors, 2012); Takashi Murakami‘s epic mural-sized painting In the Land of the Dead, Stepping on the Tail of a Rainbow (2014); and the experiential and existential Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirrored Room – The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away (2013), which purports to plunge the viewer to an endless space of reflection among a quiet riot of blinking LED lights.

Waiting for my minute alone with the infinity of Kusama’s installation, I overheard an outspoken journalist denouncing The Broad as “the largest vanity project of our lifetime,” a sentiment that, given the rise of private museums and foundations established by prominent art collectors in recent memory, is not an unusual one to hold. While the Broad’s collection is by no means a complete, unbiased view of the developments of contemporary art (and who can rightfully claim that, regardless of their private or public affiliations?), this sanctimonious attitude willfully ignores The Broad’s potential outreach to the widest possible public, and the benefits that can be derived from it. The Broad’s location, as a new jewel in a downtown revitalization project that Eli Broad has helped orchestrate, is not entirely without self-serving attributes, but it also makes the museum accessible to a much larger proportion of Los Angeles residents, particularly those from lower income, inner city areas. The other notable free admission museums in Los Angeles–the Getty and the Hammer Museum–are located a metaphorical stone’s throw from each other in the exclusive neighborhoods of Westwood and Brentwood on the west side of Los Angeles. The Broad, on the other hand, is right in the heart of the city, easily accessed by public transportation coming in from all across the Southern California region.

Installation of works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, John Ahearn and Robert Therrien in The Broad’s third-floor galleries. Courtesy of The Broad and Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Photo: Bruce Damonte.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti also addressed the crowd at the press preview that morning, boldly proclaiming “Los Angeles the contemporary art capital of the world.” Nodding to the mayor, Diller acknowledged that The Broad’s construction in Downtown Los Angeles is part of a “larger urban effort,” and heralds the increasing concentration of cultural attractions in the city center. If one were looking for a popular mandate for the new museum and for Downtown’s greater art presence, The Broad has certainly proved it, booking over 85,000 free tickets in advance of its opening. But if it truly wants to fulfill its mission to serve the public, as one of the most accessible free-entry institutions in Los Angeles, it should recognize this as a unique opportunity to introduce the wide lens of contemporary art, in all its facets, to a public that may not have the opportunity to experience it elsewhere. One can hope that through special exhibitions and new acquisitions (it estimates that it averages one new acquisition a week), The Broad will discover, and embrace, its obligation to the public to truly represent the art of our time.

2015-08-13-1439427717-4672441-TheAshleyBouderProjectcAlexisZiemsk.jpg

The Joyce Theater has been choosing some questionable repertoire as of late.

First, the venue hosted Restless Creature and The Ashley Bouder Project in the same season, both spearheaded by New York City Ballet alumnae whose celebrity promised ticket sales, if not artistic value.

Second, and more importantly, it programmed choreographer Joshua Beamish three times in one summer, and never with success.

On August 8 and 9, The Ashley Bouder Project was invited to the Joyce as part of Ballet Festival, a two-week foray into what the 21st-century dance community can offer. The amiable man to my right explained that he was attending the entire series of six shows as an education in dance, a fact that disappoints after realizing that at least one of his experiences would probably dissuade him from ever returning to the theater.

Of course, The Ashley Bouder Project was the most popular show of the run, and people begged for seats regardless of price. Somehow, “bravos” echoed despite a banal bill filled with the kind of choreography that is pushing ballet into its grave. I’m sure that dance neophytes listened to the booming applause, stupefied. Was this the best that ballet could muster?

The hour-long performance (that felt never-ending) opened with Adriana Pierce’s Unsaid, a duet between Bouder and New York City Ballet corps newbie, Preston Chamblee. Pierce, a current dancer with Miami City Ballet, must have known Bouder when she was a student at the School of American Ballet or an apprentice with NYCB (indeed, the whole production felt like Bouder and her friends playing around at the expense of an audience). Nothing but a heartfelt favor can justify Pierce’s selection as one of three featured choreographers, as Unsaid was a clunky, inelegant pas de deux with little direction.

No drama was spared. The costumes — grey, sheer cloaks — were gaudy versions of those used in every other safe contemporary ballet, where the mood is pseudo-emotional, but no one quite knows why. The cloaks were awkwardly removed and replaced as Bouder and Chamblee messed with the sleeves to make them right-side-out after tearing them off moments before. The couple stood in stark spotlights, staring at the audience longingly. Sometimes, they tripped into each other as Chamblee spun into Bouder’s arms without control. There was so much concept, and absolutely no intention. Then, there was the fact that Chamblee could barely point his feet and in soutenu turns, his ankles were a ruler’s length apart. When the duet finally concluded, it felt like the end of winter.

The second work, In Passing, was less insulting, though it lacked organization. The short film by Andrea Schermoly included several beautiful snapshots, like when Bouder moved with abandon that you’ll never see from her at the David H. Koch Theater, where Balanchine demands structure. And so the choreography proved promising – really interesting, actually — but the video itself stumbled into clichés. Dancers lying in bed in lingerie. Dancers in a tunnel. Dancers in an empty auditorium. Dancers walking through the desert. Dancers everywhere but where they should be at a live presentation: onstage. It’s a shame that the 15-minute movie was Schermoly’s contribution to the project, as she probably could have managed a concert piece with a lot of heft.

And the grand finale: Beamish’s Rouge et Noir. The six-person disaster proved a few things — Amar Ramasar is an engaging, virile dancer who can make the most of a devastating choreographic situation. Alexa Maxwell, who joined NYCB’s corps in 2013, is unpolished but harbors great potential. And Beamish, who is part of the Joyce’s Young Leader’s Circle Committee (which may clarify the reason for so much favoritism), has choreographer’s block right now. Once again, he calls on an abstract aesthetic from modern art, with colors and shapes like Mondrian’s or (as Gia Kourlas noted) Matisse’s, but he does so with so little panache or innovation that what he concocts is truly an eyesore. He must be talented to have reached the heights he has. But at least in Rouge et Noir, he somehow takes six of the most accomplished dancers in the world and makes them look awkward, weak and amateur. My friend summed it up best with his comment: “You know the cartoons that make fun of abstract dance? Well this reminded me of those.”

If I didn’t love ballet and didn’t know what genius exists in the dance world, my trip to The Ashley Bouder Project might have been my last attempt at understanding the art form. Why would I, as a young adult trying to survive in New York City, pay for that? Why would I waste my Saturday night, waiting for ingenuity that never came? I would choose Netflix any day over suffering through a program as poorly articulated as The Ashley Bouder Project. At least then, I could find something to grapple with, a meaningfulness to explore.

The saddest part? There are incredible companies fighting for attention, and they would kill for an opportunity to perform at Ballet Festival.

Oh well. Maybe next time the Joyce will try something new.

‘The Trials Of Spring’ Documentary Project Amplifies Voices Of Women In The Arab Spring

A new multimedia documentary project is spotlighting the vital roles of women in the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings.

“The Trials of Spring,” is a series of six shorts, a feature film and news reports by The New York Times that offer a rarely seen look at the gripping personal experiences of female activists in the wave of revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa.

The films profile nine women across Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Syria, Bahrain and Yemen, with each detailing their journey through uprisings and crackdowns. While each story is unique, they often share an arc similar to the larger political developments of the post-revolution countries in the region, where an initial hope for change is quashed by increasing repression and conflict.

In the Syria short, for example, archival footage shows four women known as the Brides of Peace defiantly march in protest of the Assad regime while wearing homemade wedding dresses. In interviews after fleeing the country, two of the brides describe how their triumphant demonstration caused security forces to imprison them for months.

trials of springKinda Zour, one of the Brides of Peace from Syria.

As the films show, many countries have regressed on women’s rights since the Arab Spring.

A 2013 United Nations report found that 99.3 percent of women in Egypt are subject to sexual harassment, and female activists have been forced to undergo virginity tests after being arrested for demonstrating. In an incident that sparked widespread outrage, police fatally shot female activist Shaimaa al-Sabbagh in the street during a protest earlier this year.

The team of filmmakers and producers, most of them female, presents the cross-platform project as a fascinating counter-narrative to misconceptions of women in the region as submissive to the repression of women’s rights. Instead, the films show brave acts of protest both at home and in the streets, and depict women as driving forces behind many protest movements.

“I went from I think a stereotyped understanding, to some degree, of the women in the Middle East and North Africa, to something that was more nuanced and understanding of their diversity and their strength and resilience,” said producer Beth Levison in a call with reporters on Tuesday.

Levison said stories about the Arab Spring lacked female perspectives, with media focusing mostly on men with guns and shifts in political power.

“I don’t think enough stories are told about the women who are the mortar, who are holding things together,” Levison explained. “I think that the narrative that’s often told about conflict is about who’s in what position, rather than about what’s happening on a day-to-day level to try to bring peace. It’s kind of like that old saying, ‘If it bleeds it leads.'”

anbar
Hend Nafea, a young religious Muslim woman whose story is a lead role in the feature film.

While the project puts a spotlight on activists, the films themselves are not heavy-handed works of advocacy. Instead, the works hope to amplify the voices of the women who are profiled.

“We certainly wanted to avoid the thought that here are some Western filmmakers trying to help these Arab women — because they’re incredibly strong women who can help themselves and are doing a lot to help their countries,” said the project’s Digital Director Lauren Feeney.

The short films will debut on June 7 as a special project on The New York Times homepage and will culminate with the feature focusing on Egypt that premieres at the Human Rights Watch film festival on June 12.

3 Things ‘The Mindy Project’ Taught Me

By now we’ve all been accosted by the news that Fox — the brilliant organization behind such gems as Bones! and The Swan! (note my sarcasm) — has canceled The Mindy Project.

Let’s all take a moment to sob. And sob some more. Now hiccup cry. Now breathe deeply. One more sob.

Onward.

I guess in some ways the cancellation makes sense. I mean, it was a witty, well-written, often insightful look into the lives of women. There were episodes that made me fist pump alone in my living room. Scenes that made me cry. And moments that made me feel less alone. It was groundbreaking in a way I’ve been begging female-driven vehicles to be for years. Rather than securing show’s future, all these things made the too-soon cancellation of the series practically certain from the first episode. Network TV is an aging behemoth that is sustained by soap operas and reality TV. Are there exceptions to this rule? A few. But they fill an ever-diminishing need. For the most part, anything that challenges or engages or lifts has no place on network TV. Because, like, that’s not the point.

Am I pretty fried that I no longer have a fall date with Mindy’s parents and Danny? Yeah, pretty much. Pretty fried. But I am also a little relieved on the behalf of the best show I’ve seen in the past 10 years. Mindy deserves to hang her Wreath Witherspoon in a home that feels lucky to have her.

I’ve got good hope that if a situation that is good for cast and crew presents itself, they’ll take it. Maybe Hulu, where the show already has a fierce viewership. Or Netflix, the home of #femalesarestrongashell. Or maybe we can all just kickstart and get Mindy Kaling her own damn network already.

In the meantime, as a way to distract myself from the grief cloud hovering over this house (MORGAN!!!! MORRRRRGANNNNNNNNN!!!!), here are three things I learned from The Mindy Project.

God rest her soul till we meet again.

1. I don’t have to wear sleeves. This one may not seem like much. Really, Meg? Sleeves? This is worth noting? Hell yes, it is. When I was 15, someone told me to avoid sleeveless clothes because, “although you look great, your arms are a bit heavy.” I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised. I mean, I knew I wasn’t waving around Madonna stick pins… I wasn’t delusional. But the wording really worked me over.

My arms were heavy? That description took my upper limbs a step beyond chubby and into the world of practically deformed. My heavy arms that hung heavily by my side while trying to lift light things that were too much weight to add to the heaviness of my already heavy arms. Holy hell, forget sleeveless. It was obvious to me that the best thing I could do for myself, and the pitiable people who had to look upon me, was to cover those weighted monstrosities the hell up. So I did. With ¾ length sleeves on hot days and thin sweaters on cold days. (Cable knit would have amplified the heaviness.) When I did venture out in anything less than full arm coverage, I did so as an act of defiance, “I know I don’t deserve to have the sun hit the skin above my elbow, but look me in the eyes and see if I give a damn.”

I was nearly 30 years old before Madcap Mindy showed me how ridiculous I’d been. Mindy isn’t my sister in “heavy” arms. I didn’t find solidarity in her lack of pin thin appendages. Rather I found inspiration in the easy grace with which she handled her body — arms, legs and all. There was no point being made by her choice of sleeveless blouses or short skirts or va-va-voom dresses. Her clothes were not an act of defiance. (Which was revolutionary in itself.) She wore what the hell she wanted because she was being who the hell she wanted.

In Mindy’s world, a woman who weighs more than a package of stevia could wear something something more fashionable than a sack of flour. That fact wasn’t revolutionary… it was simply a matter of course. And that, for me, was freeing as hell. I’ll never be able to thank my “best friend I’ve never met” enough for that fact. She’s changed my outlook and consequently, changed the dialogue I have with my own daughters.

2. Women don’t have to be ashamed of what they want. And they don’t have to be angered by what other women want. I’m not delusional. I know that Mindy Kaling is different from Mindy Lahiri. I know that Dr. L’s life goals diverge greatly from Grand Dame Kaling’s life goals. That being said, Kaling wrote Lahiri, and she did so with a great degree of grace and tolerance. As I watched the show, I didn’t feel Kaling judging Lahiri for having different aspirations than her creator. I felt her honoring her, rooting for her, pushing her forward. Oh my goodness, what if we could extend that same respect to the real women in our lives not just the ones we meet on TV? Could you imagine the dialogue that would ensue? The steps we’d take forward? The wounds we’d heal?

What does Mindy Lahiri want? We know early on in the series that Mindy L. is a professional woman who is also “looking for someone to go apple picking with.” She wants marriage and babies and she defines those things as integral to her happy ending. And she isn’t ashamed of it. Do you know how refreshing that storyline has been for me? A writer who also has two babies and a husband? A girl who wants her name on the front of a book and wants bubbles and baby laughter in her backyard? The Mindy Project doesn’t preach the false hope of “having it all.” Mindy has given up plenty of almost dreams for her better parts. (Dammit, San Francisco) But she is unwavering when it comes to her core happiness. To the things she feels she deserves. To the dreams she isn’t afraid of dreaming… no matter how outdated they might seem to the people around her.

Whether your dream includes babies or not, a career or not, a partner or not, compromise or not, Mindy Lahiri’s quest for her personal happiness should speak to you. You get to seek what you want without shame.

3. And finally, there is communion in the ridiculous. Listen, Mindy Lahiri is a little ridiculous. She spouts off half-baked political assessments, once said recycling makes America seem poor and went seven years without paying her taxes. But as the series went on, I didn’t find myself laughing at her, I found myself laughing with her. No one of us is free from elements of the ridiculous. We are all filled with half-baked opinions…the fact that we might keep them to ourselves doesn’t mean they don’t exist. We are all ignorant until we are not. (And then ignorant some more until we are not again.) We all have literal or figurative un-opened envelopes with contents that are past due.

Maybe we would all be better off if we stopped assuming ridiculousness was the burden of others and accepted it as the ever-evolving state of all of us. And maybe, just maybe, Mindy Lahiri style, we should just start being honest about it. Who knows? Maybe, like the great Project Herself, we’ll learn something about each other and ourselves along the way. (And laugh a little more, too.)

You know, when I heard about the cancellation, I wasn’t upset for the people in the show. They’ve proven they can create and sustain a small world and its misfit inhabitants. The actors will go on to movies. The writers will be asked to be a part of the next big thing. Mindy will continue her trajectory to a place in the stars next to Nora Ephron. (And maybe beyond?) They’re doing just fine.

Me? I’m queuing up the first season and counting my lucky stars. For a half hour every week, in a little show with little pretension, I found a brand of feminism that spoke to me, rather above or below me. I found men that loved strong women and strong women that loved men. And I found a world in which my arms were released from the constraints of décor and became beautiful and free simply because they were attached to me.

Whoa, Nelly.

Sarah Deragon’s ‘The Identity Project’ Challenges The Way We Think About Queer Identity

“The Identity Project,” from photographer Sarah Deragon, challenges the way that we compartmentalize and think about queerness and identity.

The photo series captures the way subjects want to present themselves to the world around them and communicate their personal ways of self-identifying. Mainstream understandings of what it means to be lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) tend to be narrow and specific, but with “The Identity Project,” we can see the infinite shades and hues of queerness that make up the spectrum of human identity.

dapper

The Huffington Post chatted with Deragon this week about her work and how the project has grown.

The Huffington Post: What is your driving vision for The Identity Project?
Sarah Deragon: My main vision for The Identity Project is to expand what we normally understand to be the LGBTQ communities. I wanted to create a photo project that allowed participants to self-identify and stand up and be seen for who they really are. I honestly thought that the project would be a small collection of 50 or so photographs, but the response to the project was so profound that I decided to expand it and travel to several US cities like New York City, Portland, Chicago and soon Austin to photograph more people. I imagine that this will be an ongoing project for me throughout my lifetime.

Street Art Sancocho: ArteSano Project Brings Dominican Flavor

New Year, new mural festival!

Truthfully, the appearance of new mural festivals today is faster than annual — it’s more like quarterly — but this one in the Dominican Republic was inaugurated three weeks ago and brings a certain hand crafted authenticity that holds promise for its future.

2015-01-08-brooklynstreetartjadeartesanoprojecttostfilmsmarioramirezRioSan_JuanDominicanRepublic122014web3.jpg

“ArteSano Project” gives you an indication of the personal nature of the art you are likely to see from the 25 local and international artists invited to Rio San Juan from December 11-22. It could be the name influencing our perception, but in one way or another it looks like these artists are chosen for their down-to-earth hand hewn approach. Sometimes decorative, sometimes storytelling, there are familiar themes and motifs that play well to their local audience as well as the virtual gawker.

Even with two dozen artists, it isn’t bloated: no logos or product tie-ins or DJs or high flying scissor lifts scaling massive multi-story walls with abstract surrealism, hyper photo-realism or dark pop human/animal/robot hybrids here – yet. Well, we take that back on the surrealism score; Pixel Pancho is here with a brood of chickens bobbing their industrial mesh necks atop fired tile bodices, hunting and pecking their way toward the beach, and Miami artist duo 2alas & Hox created a portrait of a boy with a partial mask overlay that calls to mind cyborgs (and Sten & Lex). But here in the loungey bare-foot tropical DR coastal area, even Pixel Pancho mutes the hues toward sun-bleached pastels, more easily complimenting their surroundings.

Free-running fowl overtook a few artists thematically, including another international artist who usually paints hybrid forms with dimension and almost mythic metaphor, but who this time tried his hand at something much more folkloric. “Importacion Cultural”, the flatly bright piece by Buenos Aires born Franco “Jaz” Fasoli, presents an entire wall with hand cut and paper collage, adding to the general feeling of approachability, and introducing a form of craft-inspired art-making more common to DIY Street Art of the 2000s than recent aerosol-infused mural festivals.

“The community was transformed during those days and over two weeks they began to see these great artists’ work and create specific pieces in different places around the town,” says Mario E. Ramirez, a Puerto Rican artist who has been documenting and capturing the burgeoning graffiti/Street Art scene in his country and places like DR with his partners at Tost Films. He says that an event like this that connects with a community yields a greater dialogue than some of the more commercial Street Art and graffiti enterprises, because the artists get to interact with neighbors closely. “At the completion of the ArteSano each artist felt like a distinguished guest of Rio San Juan. They made us feel at home, it was one of the best experiences of 2014.”

One of the organizers, Dominican born artist Evoca1, has experience working as a Street Artist as well as bringing actual physical sustenance and support to a community. For about four years the Miami based artist has delivered many meals to folks living on the street with his wife and friends through an organization he began called “Sketches For Mankind.”

With Evoca1 hosting the ArteSano project it became another form of community outreach and the curatorial responsibilities for the public art initiative was offered by the folks at the Vienna based INOPERAbLE Gallery, who have represented a mix of urban artists work including some in this show and others that are range into pop, dark pop, graphic irony, and more “traditional” contemporary Street Art.

Organizers say they hope that ArteSano gains traction and that people get to know the Dominican Republic as a good place for urban arts and muralism. There is not much transgressive here; With its mix of mainly latin name-brand and local homegrown talent, it looks like ArteSano makes a respectable entry into the international mural festival mileu with what may be the emerging alchemy of the decorative and the pleasing – peppered with some more challenging themes and muted socio-political messages.

Overall no one will argue that Rio San Juan is a great location for a painter or street artist from the northern hemisphere in December. Among the invited artists were BIKISMO, JADE, 2ALAS, HOXXOH, PASTEL, JAZ, EVER, ELIAN, LEO, VERO RIVERA, MODAFOCA, ENTES, FAITH47, AXEL VOID, PIXEL PANCHO, FILIO, ANGURRIA, 3TAMAROOTS, GABZ, POTELECHE, BAD6, SHAK, RUBEN, JOHANN,SEBAS, and PAOLA.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards.

The Spoken Word: Recollections of Dryden History, The Early Years (NASA SP-2003-4530) – Scott Crossfield Interview, Muroc, NACA Research, X-1 Project

The Spoken Word: Recollections of Dryden History, The Early Years (NASA SP-2003-4530) – Scott Crossfield Interview, Muroc, NACA Research, X-1 Project


Since the founding of the Dryden Flight Research Center History Office in 1996, its staff has conducted nearly a hundred interviews with retired and serving employees. Their recollections represent a unique resource in understanding the development of aerospace technology in the second half of the 20th century. Their personal experiences, insights, and opinions allow the reader to gain an understanding into what it was actually like to have been involved with some of the milestone events in aerospace history. These interviews have been edited and assembled into this monograph, so that a wider audience can also share in their experiences.This study covers the early years of what eventually became the Dryden Flight Research Center. It spans the period between the arrival of Walter Williams and the first group of NACA engineers at Muroc in 1946, and ends with the establishment of NASA in 1958. This timeframe encompasses the breaking of the sound barrier, the pivotal inertial coupling research, the first use of computer simulations, the transformation of the NACA facility from a pair of old hangars into a state-of-the-art research center, and the dawn of the space age. These events took place against the background of the end of World War II, the start of the Cold War, and the twin technological revolutions of jet propulsion and supersonic flight. They are told by the people who participated in these events, in their own words.The foundations of the Dryden Flight Research Center date back more than a half century, to a time when aviation faced revolutionary technical changes. When the first NACA contingent arrived in September 1946, they found the Muroc Army Air Field to be an isolated and barren outpost. The post-war demobilization had left the hastily constructed base facilities in a poor state of repair. Palmdale and Lancaster in the late 1940s were rough desert towns lacking many of the conveniences to which the new arrivals from Langley (and their spouses) had been

Four of these are projects that were chosen for publication in some of the best step-by-step jewelry magazines in America as well as internationally including Jewelry Artist, Jewelry Arts & Lapidary Journal, Wire Jewelry, and Step-by-Step Beads to name a few. You’ll also get one step-by-step design that was shown in Jewelry Artist only as a photo, not a completed how to do it design, and one step-by-step that is totally exclusive to this publication.

The Toaster Project

The Toaster Project


Hello, my name is Thomas Thwaites, and I have made a toaster. So begins-áThe Toaster Project, the author’s nine-month-long journey from his local appliance store to remote mines in the UK to his mother’s backyard, where he creates a crude foundry. Along the way, he learns that an ordinary toaster is made up of 404 separate parts, that the best way to smelt metal at home is by using a method found in a fifteenth-century treatise, and that plastic is almost impossible to make from scratch. In the end, Thwaites’s homemade toasterGÇö a haunting and strangely beautiful objectGÇöcost 250 times more than the toaster he bought at the store and involved close to two thousand miles of travel to some of Britain’s remotest locations.-áThe Toaster Project-ámay seem foolish, even insane. Yet, Thwaites’s quixotic tale, told with self-deprecating wit, helps us reflect on the costs and perils of our cheap consumer culture, and in so doing reveals much about the organization of the modern world.

Jay Shells Posts Famous Rap Quotes Around Los Angeles In Clever Street Art Project

Get excited, California. Because artist Jay Shells has taken to Los Angeles with his clever guerrilla street sign installation, “Rap Quotes.”

New York art blog ANIMAL followed Shells as he cruised along the palm tree-lined streets of the Pacific coast city, placing his bright orange signs along the way. The declarations display quotes from famous hip hop artists like Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, Warren G, and Notorious B.I.G., and are appropriately placed in the exact location the lyric calls out.

Take, for example, Warren G’s quote, “So I hooks a left on 2-1 and Lewis, some brothers shooting dice so I said ‘let’s do this,'” which can be seen on the corner of Lewis and 21st. Or Xzibit’s line, “Down La Cienega to bust a left on Venice where you can find me and mine,” which can of course be found on the corner of La Cienega and Venice.

The project aims to celebrate the roots of some of these artists as well as the cities that produce them. Shells previously took “Rap Quotes” to New York City, so we’re anxious to see which locale gets “signed” next. Feel free to speculate in the comments.

Anna Gunn To Guest Star On ‘The Mindy Project’

Anna Gunn is trading in a meth empire for scrubs and will guest star on “The Mindy Project,” E! Online reports. She’ll be playing Mindy’s (Mindy Kaling) hero, Sheila Hamilton, a New York OB/GYN who tries to woo her from her current residency at Shulman & Associates.

Gunn, who recently won an Emmy for her role as Skyler White on the AMC series “Breaking Bad,” will appear in the 13th episode this season. It will be her first acting gig since the show’s finale, and viewers can safely assume her time on “The Mindy Project” will be less dramatic than her role on “Breaking Bad.”

Since beginning its second season back in September, “The Mindy Project” has already welcomed a number of guest stars such as James Franco, Adam Pally (the “Happy Endings” star has since become a series regular) and Timothy Olyphant. However, after Gunn’s role in one of the most talked about shows in recent television history, and on the heels of her Emmy win, this is a coup for “The Mindy Project.”

“The Mindy Project” airs Tues. at 9:30 p.m. EST on Fox.
