Sophia X. Chang MArch ’13, Shu Lai Talun MArch ’09, and Jeffrey Olinger MArch ’09 Collaborating on Interactive Runway Fashion Show
Shu Lai Talun MArch ’09 of CBT Architects and Sophia X. Chang MArch ’13 are collaborating on producing an interactive runway extravaganza, which will also feature music mixes by Jeffrey Olinger MArch ’09 and wearable art by Jessica Rozenkranz who attended the GSD for a year. Slated for Saturday, April 12, 2014 at The Uniun, located in Somerville’s Union Square neighborhood, the public will be invited to try out hair and make-up services and clothing provided by local-area businesses, walk the runway, and have their pictures taken in an installation design by Sophia. The concept for the fashion show was conceived as a response to the Somerville Arts Council’s call for “creative individuals to create, produce and manage cultural events that would reinvigorate the artistic and business landscape in Union Square,” which is in part sponsoring the event. The grant received from the Arts Council will cover the event space rental, but the team is seeking additional funds to cover the cost of materials for the stage and fabric installation piece. Anyone interested in donating may do so on Kickstarter.
