Craft2Wear 2019 presents one-of-a-kind wearables

On October 4 and 5, cutting-edge couture takes over DC’s National Building Museum during the annual Smithsonian Craft2Wear show. Sixty-seven artisans from around the U. S. will showcase their handmade, limited-edition clothing, jewelry and accessories for men, women and children at this curated event. Among treasures on display will be Andrea Geer’s hand-loomed knitwear (left) and Francesca Vitali’s intricate paper jewelry (above). An opening-night benefit kicks off the action on October 3. Craft2Wear proceeds support Smithsonian outreach, research and education programs. smithsoniancraft2wear.org
