Dress

ByAileen Kwun

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The D-Crit Chapbooks present work written and edited by students in the School of Visual Arts MFA in Design Criticism. Dress, the second in the series, assembles eleven essays by writers from the School of Visual Arts’ pioneering Design Criticism MFA program, with illustrations by Peter Arkle. Alan Rapp considers Metallica frontman James Hetfield’s bogus descent to Armani-toting sellout, Stephanie Jönsson judges Pope Benedict XVI’s wardrobe more aesthetic than ascetic and Angela Reichers recalls the moment when Karl Lagerfeld lost the Fan—and the fat. The School of Visual Arts MFA in Design Criticism trains students to interrogate and evaluate design, architecture and urban infrastructure. Working alongside New York’s most respected editors, authors, critics, curators and historians, students learn to hone their writerly voices and to communicate their unique perspectives through a range of media, including exhibitions, podcasts, events, blogs and books.
