Today in the #fwmoa #studio, we celebrate centennials! Local fashion designer Bill Blass would have turned 100, and, in 2023, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards will! An Award recipient, we celebrate with a weaving project worthy of a Bill Blass dress.
Fort Wayne Fashion Icon Bill Blass
Our current exhibit, 1026 West Berry Street, shines a light on the Fort Wayne Art School and when we return from the holidays we will begin working towards the 2019 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards and exhibit. This post remembers Fort Wayne native Bill Blass — king of fashion, handsome heartthrob, most available bachelor, darling of the fashion press — all words written about this icon of high fashion who had ties to both the Art School and to the Scholastic Awards.
