Wear LACMA Fall 2018 Collection Featuring Designs by Wolk Morais and ALSO
The collection will be available online and in the LACMA Store beginning November 13
(Los Angeles, CA—October 16, 2018) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) announces its Fall 2018 Wear LACMA Collection featuring new designs by Wolk Morais and ALSO. An initiative of the museum’s Director’s Circle, Wear LACMA is an art and fashion project featuring unique edition pieces created by Los Angeles’s designers and inspired by the museum’s permanent collection and exhibitions. For this season, the designers have created a stunning and diverse collection of fashion items inspired by the museum’s permanent holdings.
"Wolk Morais and ALSO are the designers of the next Wear LACMA collection launching this Fall. Brian Wolk and Claude Morais began WOLK MORAIS in Los Angeles after transplanting to the city from New York. Their designs often take inspiration from the city of Los Angeles’ architecture, history, and visual arts. The designer’s modern mix of colors in their collections made them a perfect match for finding inspiration in Helen Frankenthaler's Winter Hunt. Moise Emquies’ new line ALSO represents a fresh look at unique blouses with easy light fabrics. The brand's blouses and dresses often have a romantic feel to them and they found a connection with the Old Master painting by Georges de La Tour The Magdalen with the Smoking Flame.” said Katherine Ross, founder of Wear LACMA.
