06/07/17 Arrive at the “In-Between” through CDG’s Raffle for a Trip to NYC

Rei Kawakubo was never so interested in boundaries. The Comme des Garçons founder has always managed to skirt fashion’s dictums in order to throw a Mad Hatter’s tea party with commerce and the avant-garde as her guests of honor. Having paved the way for im/possibility in the fashion realm, Kawakubo has warranted more than just the traditional retrospective from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.

Running from May 4 to September 4 is “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: The Art of the In-Between,” the Costume Institute’s first monographic show on a living designer since YSL in 1983. On display are approximately 140 samples of Kawakubo’s womenswear designs for CDG, from the early ‘80s to Fall of this year. With the designer’s signature of challenging of borders, pieces are arranged into oppositional themes that span “Then/Now” to “Self/Other”—all reflective of “in-betweeness.”

Now, those based in the Philippines have an opportunity to experience Kawakubo’s alternate perspective. Comme des Garçons Philippines will be flying one winner to New York to see “The Art of the In-Between.” But first, a need to step out of routine and into the CDG store in One Rockwell’s east tower to learn more about the raffle.
