Join MAD and Garmento editor Jeremy Lewis for an evening with Koos Van Den Akker, the first in a new series of fashion talks. The talk begins at 7 and is located in the downstairs theater. The event is free with museum admission. The Museum of Arts and Design is located at 2 Columbus Circle

An American fashion legend, Dutch-born and French-trained Koos Van Den Akker has been designing couture-caliber clothes over the last 40 years. Emerging at a time when folk traditions and home crafts were a huge influence in fashion, he made a name for himself as the master of couture collage. A rich panoply of color and pattern painstakingly pieced together, his designs have provided inspiration for fashion tastemakers like Nicolas Ghesquière, though they are known more popularly as worn by actor and comedian Bill Cosby on the hit sitcom The Cosby Show. Representing one of the highest level of clothes-making possible in New York City, Koos Van Den Akker’s operation is a true couture atelier, endless in its technical feats and creativity.
