What if fashion celebrated our ancestral lineage and the elders
in our community? What if it created spontaneous energetic
collaborations among strangers in sound, healing, performance, dialogue, and movement all over public spaces and in daily life?
Curated by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, FASHION FORECASTS presents an alternate futuristic reality where everyday fashion is spiritual, intersectional, intergenerational, collaborative, sustainable, and influenced by different Asian and Asian American histories, cultures, and traditions. At the same time, it playfully challenges strictly held beauty standards around age, gender expression, cultural representation, and body shapes.
Yumi Sakugawa is an Ignatz Award-nominated artist, author of illustrated novels: "There is No Right Way to Meditate," "I Think I Am in Friend Love with You," "Your Illustrated Guide to Becoming One with the Universe," and the to-be-released, "Fashion Forecasts."
Join us as we celebrate Sakugawa's opening and book release. She will be on hand to sign books.
Free and open to the public.
