Garmento Presents: Andre Walker’s “Other People”

OtherPeopleInviteOnline

“That show is everything that I love, everything that represents me. And it’s still crisp, it’s still hot. It doesn’t look dated. You can actually see some of these looks sold today.”

- Andre Walker in Garmento Issue 3

To celebrate the release of its third issue, Garmento invites you to a special screening of Andre Walker’s Fall/Winter 1999-2000 runway presentation titled “Other People.” Staged at Purple Institute and featuring only 12 looks, this extremely rare video footage offers a special look at the designer’s creative manifesto during his second tour in Paris. Designed and presented when fashion was at an impasse; a time when the edicts of ‘90s minimalism were under attack and a slew of upstart talents had begun to forge a new discourse, the show exists as an incredible record of the designer’s expression that, considering the ambiguous future fashion faces today, is as revelatory now as it was 14 years ago. “Other People” along with a selection of videos from throughout Walker’s career will be screened at 6:00 pm and again at 6:30 pm. Complimentary copies of Garmento Issue 3 will be available at the screening.

Saturday, November 2nd  5:00 – 8:00 pm

Garmento presents: Conversations in American Menswear

Never before has menswear been so developed or diverse as it is today. Traditionally conservative and slow to change, international menswear design has grown exponentially in the last 15 years, rivaling its women’s counterpart in conviction if not in creativity. This has not gone unnoticed in New York City as a new crop of designers submit their own take on contemporary men’s dress.

In an effort to open a dialogue about what these new paradigms might be Garmento zine presents “Coversations in American Menswear,” a radio-style interview series held at the Museum of Arts and Design. For four nights Garmento founder and editor Jeremy Lewis will engage four of New York’s most intriguing and compelling designers to find out what it is that makes them tick. While each of the designers live, design, and have shown their work in New York, none of them are American-born. As the series investigates new discourses in American menswear, it will also attempt to find out who the new “American man” actually is.

Utopia, 2001

 “This show was about what the word ‘utopia’ means. It was an imaginary world where everybody lives in harmony. And all the cultures melt together. It was really about trying to create this perfect world. Also in clothing, the tailoring, the precision, the purity of everything. But I always kind of try to go with the reality of what I see. Thirty-six hours later were the attacks of September 11th.”
