middle east melting pot & cultural connectivity at threeasfour – hands down my favourite of all the nyc shows.
new york based performance artists and fashion designers threesasfour created delicate and mesmerizing prints that wove together iconography from jews and arabs and israelis and palestinians including six pointed stars, kaffiyeh patterns, the evil eye and the hamsa. the collection mixes a kaleidoscope of cultures and fashion forward shapes – boasting intricately cut for everyday, utterly wearable and exotic kaftans – of which they have become well-known for, sexpot swimwear and bold breastplates. i want the lot. yoko ono, collaborator and friend of the independent designers sat front row – which says it all really in celebrity front row stakes. give me more threeasfour.
