Costumes from Bauhaus Parties, Now through April

You (like me) may have been familiar only with the clean lines & primary colors of Bauhaus graphics, interiors, industrial design, furniture, & architecture.

 

Bauhausians also gave epic costume parties. Now to April, I’ll publish a series of images of their astonishing, barely-wearable, sui generis constructs.

 

This is the first of nine.

 

What’s happening on April 7?

 

2018 is the 99th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany. To beat the 2019 rush of centennial exhibitions & celebrations, DESIGNxRI is throwing a costume party: the Bauhaus Bash. This series of save-the-dates will be aggregated into a striking poster in time for the party.

 

I’ll update regularly on the Bauhaus Bash. Tickets will go on sale in February.
