One Must Live It: Fashion Pop Up

Written by | Things to Do

Saturday and Sunday will culminate with a fashion pop-up shop featuring queer designers and artists from NYC and beyond. Swing through, hang out, and shop from 1-5pm at the museum, artists including Chella Man, Rebirth Garments, Melodie Staccato, Vincentta, Malcom-xBetts, B.Anele and Telfar Tival will bring their wares to the museum, where guests can not only enjoy the work, but take it home for themselves. Plus on Sunday, the inimitable Telfar Tival also known as Dollnxtdoor will be dj’ing all afternoon. Bring your friends and come through!

These designers and artists all use fashion as a site to explore transness, how clothing can be a source of safety and joy in an ableist world, and how photography and fashion can function as a vital tool for self representation and preservation in BIPOC, queer, disability communities.

Some items are free for Black queer community members, courtesy of the artists. Join us and experience the joy of liberatory design.
