The Cynthia Rowley Fall 2010 show after party was held at the Gagosian Shop on February 12th, where guests were immediately able to purchase appropriated designs from the Fall 2010 show. Rowley had photographed her Fall 2010 looks and then had them printed on heavy cotton, creating new pieces of wearable art and an extension of her collection.
An appropriated dress from the Cynthia Rowley for Gagosian collection retails for $320 and an uncut bolt of fabric sells for $280, encouraging you to cut and sew your own creation with the $150 sewing kit that includes the Cynthia Rowley for Gagosian label.
The appropriated pieces will be available at the Gagosian Shop through mid-March. I see the appropriated pieces as conversation pieces, limited edition works of art for Cynthia Rowley enthusiasts.
