Join three distinctively fashionable New Yorkers – hip hop pioneer and artist Fab 5 Freddy; Executive Fashion Director of Cosmopolitan and Seventeen Aya Kanai; and artist/fabric designer Elizabeth Sweetheart (a.k.a. the Green Lady of Brooklyn) – for a candid and wide-ranging conversation about the meanings of what we choose to wear. From a long-lost straw hat, to green overalls, to a pair of (literally) life-changing boots, they’ll trade intimate sartorial stories and consider how clothing provides an endlessly fertile field for personal expression and communication, especially in a city as style-conscious as New York. Moderated by Emily Spivack, author of Worn in New York: 68 Sartorial Memoirs of the City.
