Local designers Jill Giordano and Brian Scheyer of gr.dano will soon see their architectural women’s apparel in a setting that goes far beyond the racks. Beginning in July, the designers’ work will be featured in the prestigious California Design Biennial at the Pasadena Museum of California Art.
Titled Action/Reaction and featuring fashion honorees curated by former Women’s Wear Daily West Coast Bureau Chief Rose Apodaca, this year’s show continues the exhibition’s tradition of highlighting the most significant and innovative fashion, architectural, graphic and industrial designs produced in California over the last two years.
The exhibit puts gr.dano in especially esteemed company. Along with fellow 2010 honorees in the show such as Koi Suwannagate and Raven Kaufmann, past fashion honorees have included the likes of Rodarte, Magda Berliner, Phillip Lim and Trina Turk.
Want to view gr.dano locally? You’ll find the label at local stores such as Wonderland and 440 Brannan Studio.
The California Design Biennial will be on view July 18-Nov. 7, 2010.
