an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
On May 21, 2014, Kate will be giving a free talk and photographic presentation at the Fashion Institute Of Technology, supported by the Bead Society of Greater New York. After the talk, there will be a live runway show; gorgeous models will walk some of our most striking work for Kyle Cassidy, photographer extraordinaire from Philadelphia. Fancy and costume dress encouraged (but not required, of course). The theater holds about 700; we have room for you. if you are not a member of the bead society you will need to be guestlisted, which is fine.
We encourage you to submit photographs for pieces to include in the show. We are looking for beautifully crafted work, and it needs to be big and bold and dramatic- this is FASHION. Email submissions and guestlist requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Work needs to be in Tucson, AZ, by May 10 and will be returned by June 1. Yes! There will be an exhibition catalogue!
