Join us for the Walker Un-Prom: Not Your Mama’s Formal, a prom inspired fashion show presented by Walker Art Center Teen Arts Council (WACTAC) and Anna Lee of Ruby3, producer of Voltage: Fashion Amplified. As a part of the Walker’s OPEN-ENDED (the art of engagement) exhibition, WACTAC is taking prom by the heels and turning it on its tiara. The Un-Prom will cut loose from the stuffy “suit and tie, cupcake dress” formal wear by asking seven Minneapolis designers to create garments that step out of the standard garb and envision prom as extension of the arts. This in-gallery fashion show will include a performance by electro-rockers The Battle Royale on visual artist Rirkrit Tiravanija’s massive spiraling stage. Designers include Ra’mon-Lawrence Coleman, Laura Fulk, Katherine Gerdes, Princess Warrior, Alex Smith, Carly Stipe, and Rebecca Yaker. Models provided by Vision Management Group. Hair and makeup by Eclecticoiffeur.
