Contemporary Threads: Pop-Up Exhibition

Exhibition Website

May 5 2017 - May 25 2017

Contemporary Threads is a pop-up exhibition at the Pfister Hotel, featuring jaw-dropping, gorgeous designs by eight of Milwaukee’s leading fashion designers. The exhibition previews MOWA’s summertime sartorial blowout of four concurrent fashion exhibitions, opening at the museum on June 11. In frugal, frigid Wisconsin, it can be difficult for fashion culture to overcome the four-season strength of the colors Green and Gold, but these eight designers have done just that with innovative designs and a strong sense of aesthetics. From Project Runway contestants to university professors to influential business leaders, these eight designers are well-known locally and in the trendsetting fashion capitals of the world.
