design is everywhere.

Living in New York City is so fabulous because at any moment on any given day there are hundreds of amazing exhibits, shows, and events to check out. Finding inspiration is not hard in a place like the Big Apple. All you have to do is open your eyes. The "Dress Codes" exhibit at the International Center of Photography has been on my radar for quite some time now.

Janaina Tschape & Lorna Simpson

The Dress Codes Exhibit runs until January 17th and is described online as....The theme of fashion encompasses a diverse range of practices and ideas, including explorations of identity and affiliation; the production, distribution, and consumption of images and goods; contemporaneity; age; gender; and global industry. The themes of the Triennial express the exuberance, wit, and astute social observation taking place within contemporary image-making. These artists variously explore fashion—whether in everyday dress, haute couture, street fashion, or uniforms—as a celebration of individuality, personal identity, and self-expression, and as cultural, religious, social, and political statements.
