Garmento Presents: “Issey Miyake at FIT”

Janice Dickinson

Sara Kapp

Bethann Hardison and Toukie Smith

To celebrate the release of its second issue, Garmento presents a special viewing of Anton Perich’s ISSEY MIYAKE AT FIT, a rare short film of the designer’s legendary 1976 fashion show featuring performances by Pat Cleveland, Janice Dickinson, Sara Kapp, and Toukie Smith, with appearances by Issey Miyake, Victor Hugo, and Diana Vreeland. It was and remains to be one of the most considerable fashion moments, when Miyake’s startling avant-garde discourse and Utopian aspirations were expressed through the joyous and energetic optimism of New York City in the mid-‘70s. A significant documentation of its era, the film is as much a testament to Miyake’s virtuosity and genius as it is to the spirit of the New York fashion community that reveled in it.

Garmento Issue 2, entitled “Days of Future Past”, features Tom Scott, Peggy Moffitt, Rudi Gernreich, Pierre Cardin, Issey Miyake, and Miguel Adrover.
Please join us to view the film and receive a copy of the new issue.

Kenzo, 1977

Charles James, 1977

A New York fashion moment to consider as the shows kick off: in a film by Anton Perich, Matuschka models the last designs of the grand couturier at the Chelsea Hotel. James, who you can see directing Matuscka in her poses, would pass the next year from bronchial pneumonia, alone and in poverty, and as one the greatest designers the fashion world has ever known.
