Wearable Art

Smithsonian Craft2Wear showcases cutting-edge couture and one-of-a-kind jewelry from October 5 to 7.

More than 60 designers will display their clothing, jewelry and accessory collections—ranging from classic to avant-garde—at the Smithsonian Craft2Wear show. Exhibitor Janice Kissinger “builds” her own textiles and fashions by hand without sewing.

Held at the National Building Museum, the juried event begins Thursday, October 5, with an evening reception (admission: $50), then continues all day on the 6th and 7th (admission: $15). Proceeds benefit Smithsonian museums and programs. smithsoniancraft2wear.org
