From Parsons Fashion at The New School:
To kick off Parsons Reunion, alumni are invited to celebrate the life and work of the late Willi Smith, alumnus and renowned fashion designer, with a film screening and Q&A.
EXPEDITION, a short film shot in Senegal by famed photographer Max Vadukul, was made for Willi Wear/Willi Smith and premiered at the Ziegfeld Theatre during Fall Fashion Week 1985. It hasn't been shown publicly in more than 30 years. This screening will be followed by Q&A with the film's producer, Live Rocket CEO Mark Bozek; model and activist Bethann Hardison; and Paper Magazine co-founder and editor-in-chief Kim Hastreiter. Moderated by fashion historian Kim Jenkins, MA Fashion Studies '13.
