Fluid Fashion – Gender Fluidity

André Leon Talley took St. Louis by storm when he spoke at the St. Louis Art Museum’s Reigning Men exhibit.  In less than three weeks, Mr. Talley in partnership with the Saint Louis Fashion Fund and St. Louis Art Museum, produced a runway show this past Saturday, July 15th, sponsored by Neiman Marcus. Manolo Blahnik provided shoes for the women. All clothing pieces were created by the incubator designers. Mr. Talley gives a crash course in fashion history regarding “gender fluid elegance” beginning with Coco Chanel, Paul Poiret, Marlene Dietrich, Josephine Baker, Katherine Hepburn, David Bowie, Grace Jones, Mick Jagger, and modern-day Janelle Monáe.

My latest article on Huffington Post cover the Fluid Fashion ’18 runway show.
