As part of the ongoing “FUTURES” exhibit, the Smithsonian Arts + Industries Building opened up after hours to host a memorable night of innovative fashion on May 12. Open to the public, patrons decked out in their best attempts of futuristic fashion — sequins, neon, and a lot of metallics — scoured for the best spots around the runway to catch a glimpse.
Curated by local agency Studio Couture, the show featured a range of designers with different aesthetics and visions of the future. From the goth-punk designs of Joey Jett to the African goddess attire of DMV designer Grace Yeboah Ofori, the runway showcased what the future of fashion has in store for us.
