Fashion students at Pratt Institute were challenged to re-think the form, function, and design of knitwear as fine art for an innovative exhibition, free and open to the public, at Ralph Pucci’s Gallery Nine.
The students worked exclusively with neutral-colored yarn to complement Ralph Pucci’s classic MANNEQUIN collection in matte grey.
Of the more than 90 projects considered for the exhibition, 27 works will be on view in “Organic Matter,” and each design illustrates a forward-thinking approach to knitwear.
Among the many diverse works featured are:
· a knit corset and crocheted mesh shrug dipped in beeswax,
· a large-gauge knit tee of panty hose, and knit skirt with leather suspenders,
· a crocheted coat featuring a stuffed-dog doll collar,
· and a caged sphere head piece and skirt with a crocheted bodysuit.
The opening reception is Tuesday, January 21 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
