Shammara McKay & Devi Vallabhaneni

Opening: May 8, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

On View: May 9 - May 31, 2024

The Art of Fashion brings together artists Shammara McKay and Devi Vallabhaneni in a visual exploration of how fashion inspires us. Shammara specializes in street photography, where she captures the attitude and the motion - even when the subjects are still - synonymous with the personal styles across New York City. Based in Los Angeles, Devi creates one of a kind pieces of Abstract Couture (trademark), using bespoke, handmade sequins to create dresses we can only dream about wearing. This show juxtaposes their distinct mediums - Devi’s about the precision and order of couture, and Shammara’s about the relentless pursuit of a specific style moment - in a conversation exploring how fashion defines us and can be an outward manifestation of the beauty within.
