New York Fashion Week can be just the same old brands, can’t it? Fret not if you’re looking for something fresh.
Over at the Brooklyn Museum, “Dress Code” is an exhibition featuring 10 underground designers from New York who push fashion to the next level with art-inspired design, some of which calls to mind a Le Corbusier painting.

Curated by Anita Dolce Vita of the brand dapperQ, the show focuses on queer fashion. “Queer style pushes, pulls, challenges and blurs heteronormative, binary gender expectations, and is thus an act of rebellion,” Dolce Vita told HuffPost.
“This year’s theme, ‘Dress Code,’ examines clothing as a coded language and one of the first visible markers of our identities, inviting guests to consider the way garments uphold or challenge rigid stereotypes.”
