LACMA Kimono Exhibit

 FASH 244 Ethnic Fashion went on a field trip to visit LACMA's Kimono for a Modern Era. On display were Kimonos from 1900-1950.  The kimono is the traditional garment for Japanese, but the vivid prints show the influence of modern culture.  The kimono below resembles radio waves and shows the modern influence of technology in the horizontal pattern.
The print on the kimono below is inspired by Sputnik!
The kimono below has a print inspired by jazz music.
Check out the ships and penguins on this kimono shirt:
You can really see the influence of abstract expressionism in the textiles.

Become Diane von Furstenberg's Brand Ambassador!

Diane von Furstenberg is set to get into the fashion reality TV game. And while we think it’s safe to say there are way too many fashion reality TV shows on the air at this point, von Furstenberg’s new venture sounds a little different.
Instead of trying to find the next big designer or model, von Furstenberg is looking to fill the all-important role of a “brand ambassador” in her “transformational docu-series for the millennial fashionista,” as described by a casting flyer that landed in our inbox yesterday.
Indeed, a “brand ambassador” is certainly a millennial career. And one that, we’ll admit, we have no idea how to get, unless you’re already a celebrity or an It Girl. Here’s what the show is looking for: They’ve put out a call for “all smart and driven fashionistas who appear to be 20-25 and are interested in learning the ins and outs of the fashion industry from one of America’s most legendary fashion icons.” Nope, you don’t have to actually be 20-25. You just have to look like you are.
Details are scarce at this point, but the casting producer told us the show, which is currently being referred to as the “DVF DocuSeries,” will air on a “major cable network.” It’s being produced by Electus, the same company that does Fashion Star and Mob Wives. They plan to shoot for 6 to 8 weeks in the spring of next year. Contestants on the show will be “trained as brand ambassadors” and compensated. Applicants must be interested in fashion, but there are no requirements in terms of education or work experience.
Like all reality TV shows, this could turn out really good — see Kell On Earth and Project Runway in the beginning — or really bad, like Fashion Star was…always. We love von Furstenberg, and are hoping for the best. Plus, we just genuinely want to know what a brand ambassador does.
Interested in the gig? See the flyer below for details on how to apply.
