CITY Art-a-Porter: Susanne Bartsch
CALLING ALL FASHION MAVENS!
Join us for CITY 2017
Susanne Bartsch: Art-a-Porter
Saturday, September 9
An emulsion of fashion and culture, CITY is the signature fashion event at the Tampa Museum of Art that raises funds annually to bring art and arts education programs for visitors of all ages to our community.
In 2017, CITY will be a “fashion event” in performance art style, a departure from a typical runway show, with Susanne Bartsch at the epicenter. Interactive vignettes – each created and styled by a different designer – will feature new looks inspired by Bartsch’s eccentric, avant-garde style and her impact on club kid culture, past and present.
About Susanne Bartsch
The Tampa Museum of Art is proud to present “the queen of New York City nightlife” Susanne Bartsch as the subject of this year’s CITY. Bartsch has been a pioneer on the NYC fashion, art and underground club scene since the 1980s, serving as a friend and muse to legions of game-changing fashion designers such as John Galliano, Thierry Mugler, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen.
