Daniel Lismore: Be Yourself; Everyone Else Is Already Taken @SCAD FASH
“ATLANTA —SCAD FASH, the Savannah College of Art and Design’s museum celebrating fashion and film, presents “Be Yourself; Everyone Else Is Already Taken” — the first U.S. exhibition featuring the work of artist, stylist and designer Daniel Lismore .
Curated by Rafael Gomes, director of fashion exhibitions at SCAD, “Be Yourself; Everyone Else Is Already Taken” features 30 ensembles styled by Lismore exclusively for SCAD FASH and includes hundreds of items on loan from Lismore’s extensive personal wardrobe.
Lismore is known for his distinctive ensembles that brilliantly combine couture garments with myriad found objects — from vintage fabrics and accessories to ethnic jewelry and millinery — to form an expression of eccentric, creative energy that reflects his unique sartorial point of view.
The core of Lismore’s artistic practice is sustainable fashion, a growing design philosophy that espouses creative reuse, upcycling of materials and reduction of impact on the environment. In recognition of his efforts on this front, retail clothing company H&M selected Lismore in September 2015 to be a face of its “Close the Loop” campaign promoting recycling in the fashion industry.”
The exhibition runs from 22nd January to 1st April at SCAD FASH “
