As we gear up for August’s Target First Saturday we are thrilled to be working with partners such as caribBEING, Haiti Cultural Exchange, and BUTCH DIVA. Each organization is truly excited to be working with the museum to co-present the best of the best from their community. We had a chance to catch up with Tiffany Rhodes, Founder of BUTCH DIVA and lead producer of our fashion show for the evening. Check out what she had to say:
"Words cannot quite describe how overwhelmingly excited I am to share this collection Saturday, inspired by all the colors and vibes of the island during carnival season! There’s a story to be told with this presentation, and it’s such an honor to be hosted by the Brooklyn Museum, especially following exhibits such as the one they had for Jean Paul Gaultier earlier this year! I will also be joined by peer designer for Toure, and the dance moves of celebrity choreographer Tanisha Scott in opening the show with a tribute to Queen Patra. I feel blessed with inspiration ooozing thru my pores! It’s going to truly be an epic experience - one for the history books! My soul went into this, and the pieces were made WITH LOVE!"
