If you live in the greater NYC area, consider designing your schedule on November 4 and 5 to get up close and personal with award-winning designer Ralph Rucci!
On Tuesday, November 4 at 6:30 PM, this master of innovative cutting, seaming and hand craftsmanship will talk about his creative process and inspiration at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum (5th Avenue at 91st Street).
The very next day, at 4:30 PM at the Cooper Hewitt Design Center (111 Central Park North), Rucci will teach a teen workshop in which you’ll be assigned a fictional client and will use sketching, fabric and collage to design a piece for them. Best of all, both are FREE for teens—all you have to do is RSVP here for the talk and here for the workshop!
