I spent most of this week – so far – fielding texts, emails and just talking to a lot of people I do not know. Yet.
from all of this, we’ve cobbled together our deSTIJL-inspired lineup for next SATURDAY. Here’s a looook:
1. GERRY O. SIMPSON, a.k.a. GOS”
I’ve known Gerry for about a dozen years and we’ve talked design and fashion and art and design and fashion, what is sophisticated, what isn’t and what’s going on on the runways RIGHT NOW – today, and in the past. What IS fashion?
And Gerry’s been working on his GREEN and RED ART WEAR collection for about a year – of which we’ll have a selection that will walk our Runway Saturday night at 9 p.m.
Gerry’s art gallery is located in Uptown Sacramento.
