Thrift POP

Sunday, July 9, 2 p.m.
Minnesota Museum of American Art
Tickets: $10 ($8 for seniors and students)

Join designer and stylist Lisa Marie Gherardini for an afternoon of thrift-inspired style tips and eye-opening insight into the environmental impact of the fashion industry and unchecked consumption.

Join creative, designer, stylist, and socially-conscious human Lisa Marie Gherardini for an afternoon of thrift-inspired fashion tips. Her practice is informed by impact—impact the fashion industry has on both the environment and consumer habits. Surrounded by the installations of David Hamlow: Mirror Stage, another creative response to the impact of mass consumption, come to the M for an afternoon of fashion-forward aesthetics and consciousness-raising. Maximize, costumize (flair!), and learn how to be on-trend by using thrift-store finds to make the most of the abundance of clothes and baubles already in your closet. Expect styling tips, a runway moment, and snippets from the documentary The True Cost.

Tickets to the event are $10 ($8 for elders and students). Sparkling beverages are included in the cost of admission. Come with one piece of clothing from home you’re ready to toss out, and work with Gherardini on bringing it back to life!

This program is related to the M’s ongoing exhibit, David Hamlow: Mirror Stage, on view through July 30, 2017.
