Who Are You Wearing, An Outdoor Exhibition of Street Fashion Paintings
October 12, 2013
If you were strolling through Union Square back in May you may have run into Danielle Festa’s red carpet. She set up a photo-shoot on the plaza capturing casual passerby and asking them to pose for her. She then took her photographs and created a series of original mixed-media oil paintings that highlight the influence of attire.
The contradiction of everyday people posing on what is normally reserved for the fashion elite is part of what draws Festa to the red carpet scenario. You can expect the elements of the red carpet along with fabrics relating back to the fashion of her subject to be integrated into her oil paintings.
In addition to the artwork on display, there will be hor generously donated by Cantina La Mexicana and Sweet Ginger.
