Video Title:
Willi Smith: Rebellion in Design (with Audio Description)
Description:
On the surface, fashion and architecture may seem like disconnected worlds; however, the processes inherent to both regularly overlap. Designers are frequently faced with practical challenges to translate vision into reality. Through working between the fields of architecture and fashion, these visions can often be brought to life. The subject of Willi Smith: Street Couture, fashion designer Willi Smith seamlessly connected contemporary architecture and his collections within both showrooms and retail interiors, using these disciplines to combat conventional modes of marketing and presentation. In this conversation, Virgil Abloh (Chief Creative Director and founder of Off-White™️ and Men’s Artistic Director at Louis Vuitton) and architect James Wines (Founder, SITE; 2013 National Design Award winner) together with interdisciplinary architect Oana Stănescu discuss the cross-sections of fashion and architecture as related to the making of spaces and culture, and disrupting hegemony through design. https://www.cooperhewitt.org/channel/willi-smith-street-couture/
