Extra! Extra! Vogue All About IT!
Pratt Institute has been known for graduating the best in the fashion industry to its great academic record. However, when Pratt students and the fabulous Raplh Pucci collaborated on this special, paper project, it shocked everyone. The students majored in different studies which were fashion, industrial, interior and fine arts and this challenge to design and create clothing from paper. The students did produce an abstract collection that was modern, clean and fresh which is now on display at the Gallery Nine at 44 West 18th Street in Manhattan, New York. The presentation was called Paper+Ralph Pucci that had an opening party and was shown during the Visual Market Week with a appearance on Broadway, Jan10, 2011 and in Macy's windows. To top this all off, the students were judged by fashion professionals such as Anna Sui,Greg Mills,Linda Fargo from Bergdoof Goodman, etc. and received a mannequin created by Michael Evert for their paper sculpture design.
