In Case You Missed It: What Happened in Art, Fashion, Pop Culture
TAG brings you more arty fashion news during NYFW 2016.
Entertainment 12 Sep 2016

Fashion Week 2016 hit the Big Apple with a wave of stars and Hollywood A-listers in their best outfits and glittery make up. Designers were indeed the highlight of the New York Fashion Week (as well as on Instagram), yet new models and celebrities did not go unnoticed. Fashion designer Alexander Wang seems to have selected blonde platinum models for his fashion show, some of which are expected to be the next show-stoppers in the industry; while Taylor Swift attended NYFW to support bestie Gigi Hadid. In other news, Kanye West continues to make the headlines. His Yeezy Fashion Show was described as a “Hot Mess” following models fainting during his somewhat art performance. On the other side of the pond, British designer JW Anderson has plans to bring together art and fashion in a new show.
More details below!

Artnet recently picked out some of the most glamorous snapshots from Katie Keight’s Instagram, unveiling what it’s like to be the girlfriend of Britain’s most wealthiest artist, Damien Hirst. As expected, it seems to be pretty snazzy with numerous selfies with top artists such as Jeff Koons, or pictures of herself in a yoga studio Hirst approved to build in their Regent’s Park mansion. Ah, the life of the rich and famous!
 #2   Tom Ford: the fashion designer-turned filmmaker impresses at Venice Film Festival

 #3   Refinery29 Create A “Social Media Spectacle” with “29 Rooms”
“29 Rooms” is an immense, whimsical interactive installation conceptualised by Piera Gelardi, the co-founder and  executive creative director of Refinery29, alongside Albie Alexander Hueston, the company’s creative director of experiential. This immersive colourful environment brings together art, fashion, and technology, becoming the next hot spot for selfies in New York.
 #4   Models Passed Out During Kanye West’s “Yeezy Fashion Show” in New York
What happens to models standing in extreme heat outside? Chances are they faint, but not according to artist Vanessa Beecroft who says “emotional stress” is to blame. Indeed, models were “dropping like flies” according to The Telegraph during West’s launch of Yeezy Season 4 clothing line in New York. Beecroft, the choreographer of the show claimed that the event was purposely delayed, leaving the underwear-clad models in scorching heat. Could it have been an “art performance” from the hip hop singer?
 #5   British Designer JW Anderson To Bridge Art and Fashion In New Exhibition
Obsessed with 20th Century art such as Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, the Northern Ireland fashion designer JW Anderson, will showcase his designs based on these famed artists’s works at the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery. Anderson’s designs are expected to be featured alongside the creations of Christian Dior and Jean Paul Gautier.
