Last Thursday my class ventured to the Dover Street Market. This market was curated by Rei Kawakubo designer of Comme Des Garcons. In the market, we saw so may cool garments from a range of different designers including Gucci, Supreme, The Row, Comme Des Garcons, and Calvin Klein. The market is 7 floors and each floor is filled with a bunch of clothing by so many designers. What I loved about DSMNY was that each designer gets a space in the market and they are allowed to decorate and design their space. I loved how designers are able to add art to their collections this way.
Rei Kawakubo said, “We hope to make DSMNY more and more interesting. I enjoy seeing all the customers coming to DSMNY dressed in their strong, good looking and individual way. I would like for DSMNY to be the place where fashion becomes fascinating.”
DSMNY was so interesting to see! I loved how they choose to show the designers more complex and crazy designs rather than what a department store like Saks Fifth Avenue would show.
