Style Journey
An exhibition of contemporary kurtas, hand-embroidered and collaboratively designed by FIT Textile/Surface Design students and Fashion Design students from Pearl Academy, India, with an installation by N'Ketiah Brakohiapa, a textile artist and FIT alum, taking inspiration from his native Ghana. Using traditional hand-printed techniques and a range of colors and patterns, Brakohiapa's cloths and garments speak to a very long tradition of textile design that is more than just fashion. Brakohiapa's designs are rich in symbolism and expert in their execution.
Also on view in the Art and Design Gallery was an installation by Emily Omesi, recent alumna (FD' 21) and award-winner (winner of the Real Leather International Design Competition ) and current Fashion Design student Anthony Cruz. Special guest artist Sharmistha Ray exhibited conceptual works on paper that involve modes of automatic writing and intuitive geometries.
Dates: October 18-November 21, 2021
