The Baum School of Art is pleased to present a fashion exhibit entitled Frock & Roll: Fashion That Rocks, from February 9th through March 2nd, 2012.

Consisting of high end designer fashions and accessories, the show explores fashion that exists outside the traditional boundaries of daily attire. Curated by fashion designer and Baum School fashion instructor Pamela Ptak, the garments have been selected from a diverse range of designers, some well established in the fashion pantheons of Paris, London and New York and some newly emerging, to express varying perspectives on what defines a garment.

Rather than a purely conventional interpretation of the theme, the show explores the spirit of rock & roll with it’s inherent irreverence, excitement, & attitude.

Additional Project Runway designers featured in the show include Ben Chmura, Marla Duran, Kristin Haskins Simms, Mila Hermanovski, Jay Nicolas Sario, and Pamela Ptak.
