Vignelli Center for Design Studies sponsors an annual and much anticipated event, Beyond Fashion.
This exhibition is curated by Etta Arnold, RIT College of Liberal Arts, Museum Studies, BS 2024, and features the original fashion designs from the 2022 event and will incrementally install designs from the 2023 event.
This year’s theme is ‘The Grid is Everything’ – a tribute to Lella and Massimo Vignelli’s key design principle. The work featured is inspired by artifacts from the Vignelli Center for Design Studies Archive. A celebration of design and community, Beyond Fashion weaves together a diverse collection of garments crafted by select local designers and students from RIT College of Art and Design’s Metal and Jewelry Design and Industrial Design.
The third annual show will be at RIT Magic Spell Studios Sound Stage on December 8, 2023. Tickets are exclusively available online here.
