Elizabeth Semmelhack, author of Sneakers x Culture: Collab, explores the collaborative culture that surrounds sneakers.
Collaborations have a long history in western fashion and are only increasing in importance especially in sneaker design. This talk charts the history of sneaker collabs beginning in the 1930s and will explore how complex cultural politics and shifting ideas of gender have led to a wide range of people, from musicians and athletes to high fashion designers and blue-chip artists, to participate in sneaker collaborations.
This free online program is presented by The National Arts Club.
