Art & Fashion in August, part 1

This Saturday, August 4th, is "A New Look Fashion Show" at the Henry Art Gallery.

Inspired by Josiah McElheny’s 'An Historical Anecdote About Fashion' (part of the Viewfinder exhibition), the Henry and Pretty Parlor join forces to bring you a New Look Fashion Show, an exciting peek into the fashion archives of the Henry - didn't know the Henry even had fashion archives? Neither did I, until viewing McElheny's exhibit in Viewfinder. The fabulous 'New Look' dresses in the installation are being rotated every couple weeks, and they come from the Henry's collection.

"A New Look Fashion Show" also features a bonus trunk show of new fashions by local designers House of Pretty Parlor, Ruffeo Hearts ‘Lil Snotty, and Suzabelle. See the exhibition Viewfinder, grab a coffee in the Baci Cafe, then take a seat in the sunny Sculpture Court to check these gorgeous vintage fashions and rub elbows with local contemporary designers!

The fashion show starts at 2 pm and admission is FREE! The Henry Art Gallery is located on the western edge of the University of Washington campus at 15th Avenue NE and NE 41st Street.
