dapperQ Presents Dress Code
September 6 | 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Beaux-Arts Court, 3rd Floor
Kick off New York Fashion Week with dapperQ’s fifth annual queer runway showcase. This year, “Dress Code” examines clothing as a coded language and one of the first visible markers of our identities, inviting you to consider the way garments uphold or challenge rigid stereotypes.
Mix and mingle at a happy hour sponsored by Henrietta Hudson, New York City’s longest-standing brick and mortar lesbian bar, and check out pop-up shops from some of the evening’s featured designers before the runway showcase featuring Thuy Custom Clothier, A/C Space by Angie Chuang, Audio Helkuik, By Nicole Wilson, SALT, Stuzo, Jag and Co, TomboyX featuring Squirrel vs. Coyote, The Phluid Project, and more.
6 pm “Sip and Shop”: Happy hour, pop-up shops, GIF booth, and beats by DJ M.O.
8:15 pm Runway showcase
Tickets are $16 and include Museum admission. Members receive 10% off. Not a Member? Join today!
