Trunk Show Alert

Attention, All Fashionistas -- Trunk show alert this Sunday!!
 
"3 by Three," made up of up-and-coming Philadelphia designers Melissa D'Agostino, Rachel Sherman, and Janell Wysock, hosts a collaborative trunk show to celebrate wearable art and to provide fashion-conscious women an innovative approach to expressing their own individual style.  The dynamic designing trio, all of whom studied at Moore College of Art and Design, has an intelligent take on textiles, focusing on the fabric and how it best works to flatter and fit the body. Oh lala!
 
Melissa D'Agostino of D'Agostino, boasts an comfort-chic aesthetic, mixing shibori prints and abstract patterns on a range of lush materials.  Her use of draping is particularly swoon-worthy, juxtaposing organic layering with a tailored form. 
 
Rachel Sherman of Malagueta, concentrates on the movement in her collection, featuring a fabulous series of vibrant colors and fluid lines.  Sherman's colorful creations are especially enticing for spring and summer, as they sizzle to elicit a bold statement that is funky yet feminine.  
 
Janell Wysock of Wysock's Wearables, takes a micro-approach in her designs, making fine art within the fibers of her material.  Wysock has a knack for using obsolete media in textile -- such as weaving audiocassette tape into her creations! - establishing a signature style that is both environmentally sustainable and artistic. 
 
The "3 by Three" Trunk Show will be held Sunday, May 23rd, 11am to 5pm, at Material Culture, located in the Philadelphia Design & Distribution Center.  The trunk show will showcase current collections from each of the fab designers, while offering handcrafted, custom-order pieces and samples for purchase.  And of course, like any trunk show worth visiting, there will be light refreshments served at the event!
 
So set your alarm clocks this Sunday, ladies and don't miss out on this wardrobe-inspiring opportunity!
