Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA), Little Italy Thursday May 16 2013 11:00 - 21:00
See the work of 16 Chinese-American garment makers, including Derek Lam, Vivienne Tam, Jason Wu and Peter Som. New York designer Mary Ping guest-curated the collection, highlighting more than 20 standout pieces, including a Peter Som silk frock from fall 2010, a Wayne Lee black-and-white dress from spring 2012 and a stunning Zang Toi hand-beaded knit gown from spring 1991. The signature work of each is framed by developments in the growth of Gotham’s fashion industry and its relationship to Chinese-American identity.
