Direct Action Fashion Show
Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (155 Avenue C, Manhattan)
Celebrate how activists use costumes, puppets, and props to draw awareness to various environmental, social, and political issues and create positive, sustainable change.
At the same time that parts of our city will be taken over by Fashion Week’s bold images intended to grease the wheels of extreme consumption, we plan to explore the ways in which spectacle can be used for the greater good, rather than corporate gain.
Earth Celebrations, Time’s Up!, People’s Puppets of OWS, The MoS Collective and other organizations will be in attendance, and Arrow Chrome will DJ. Special appearance by Gene Pool, the “Can Man.” Expect food, drinks and sparkles galore.
We’re sorry to say that it’s going to be too cold for Rude Mechanical Orchestra to lead us on a march prior to the fashion show. But never fear! RMO will play on! Come to the museum at 7pm as they kick off the event as only the Rude Mechanical Orchestra can.
