Somerville Open Studios will kick off Thursday, April 30th with the 4th annual Beyond the Pattern fashion show.
Beyond the Pattern is a runway presentation featuring wearable art made by local artists. Models will display a range of work that represents the artists’ exploration of fashion in art. This year attendees will see original designs that have been influenced by history, indigenous cultures, significant life events, ecology, the cosmos and the beauty of the human form.
The show will also showcase local students from Somerville High School’s Fashion Club as part of the Young Designers Challenge, in an effort to support art education at a grassroots level.
