Today we’re taking a little trip to Providence, Rhode Island, to take a peek at a stunner of an exhibition now on at the museum at Rhode Island School of Design. “All of Everything: Todd Oldham Fashion” is a riot of color, whimsy, and yes, of course, there’s knitting in the mix. Todd Oldham is a designer known for his good humor, wit, and love of color. Thanks to our roving correspondent Amber Fearn for her fearless reportage.
Amber writes: “As you can imagine, it was breathtakingly bright and extravagant. However, as I neared the end I was captivated by a bodice that looks remarkably familiar . . . ; )”
(I think she’s referring to my random-stitched cardigan, a work in progress that will never hit this level of order and coherence!)
“The next one was this outrageous yarn coat that I covet with a passion.”
“And the showstopper in the center of it all was the pouffy dress of wonder (my title). Designed as a collaboration with the students, it features a knit top with and lace-up back and pompoms.”
“Close up of the pompoms included, of course.”
Worth a detour to get a look at these spectacular clothes. And on June 17, they’re hosting an All of Everything Dance Party, with Todd Oldham in attendance. It promises to be a celebration of all things ’90s. Somebody go!
