The Sartorialist at The Met this Sunday!

I am very excited to participate in a panel discussion about fashion and blogging that will be hosted by Harold Koda and the Costume Institute and The Metropolitan Museum of Art this Sunday.

Cathy Horyn of the New York Times and Diane Pernet will also be part of the panel.

The event is free with admission to the museum. I would love to see…all of you at the event, if possible.

The event will be held at:
The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium at the Museum on Sunday, March 30, 2008 from 3:00-4:45pm.

    I wish I could make it but I will be in Boston this weekend. I am sure the turn out and the event will be wonderful. Perhaps next stop for the Sat will be the Museum of Modern Art? I would love to go to one of your events!

    Sartorialist, I feel a tad insulted.

    When I was in New York (visiting the met), you were in DC.
    And now that I’ve returned to DC, you are at the Met.

    When will the madness end?!

    Will someone be live blogging this event? If so, you could leave a url in the comments section?

    I’m sure all the readers would appreciate it.

    I won’t make it, I’m sorry. Not so easy to get there from Eastern Europe… ;)

    May stop by. I have senior comprehensive exams this weekend :( On course to graduate come May, but I may steal a moment to jet down to NYC for this! I’m sure the Sartorialist faithfuls in NY will line the streets outside The Met! You don’t need to worry Mr. Schuman.

    I’m with Ray and Ama!
    You should organize life blogging for us, poor CEE (and for every non new yorker)-bloggers.

    Sadness! I always seem to miss you by a couple of days.

    And like the other blogger says, when I’m in New York, you’re in DC. And now that I’m back in Puerto Rico, you’re back in New York. Oh. Unfair.

    I wish I could be there,it sounds like it will be a vibrant discussion. As if it could be anything else when the subject is fashion and you are involed. Sadly I have to remain in Albany, the capital of our great state of New York and do my part to assist in the passing of our 2008 Budget.

    I guess I need to find a better job. If you hear of anything, let me know! PLEASE!!

    Hey, while you’re there, make a point to photograph some of the “average” people who show up there. In general, some of the coolest people are to be found in museums.

    Just saw this notice — can’t go anyway because of work, but I would have loved to under different circumstances.

    In addition to your report, make sure to link to any follow-up articles.

    Good Luck!

    Great pic! Lots of energy to it, and I like that there are people of different ages, shapes and sizes.

    Lately, I’ve been noticing that super slim people are the only ones featured here. How about some more curves? Ectomorphs are nice to look at, but so are other shapes.

    Interesting. I was in the second to last row. The man behind me fell asleep three minutes in.

    I went today and have to say it was great to hear your perspectives. I think what you do is great. Fashion isn’t art. When I pick up Vogue or such, that is just somebody trying to sell me something….which is fashion. When I come to your blog….that is art, because art is the way we live our lives. Art is the way we present ourselves in the way we dress, talk, behave, work, love, etc. (Whether it’s beautiful or not is another subject.) What I see on your site is the beauty and art of the lives that you present. That inspires me to live a beatiful life. Even that little girl from India you choseto present to us. She is art; a beautiful person in an ugly environment. So thank you for creating a balance in a blogging world where so much of it is dedicated to showing the flaws and ugliness of celebrity….I mean humanity.

    I was there! It was great to see all three fashion blog all-stars in one place! =) I wish I could have stayed until the end though, I was planning to ask to have my photo taken with you! My blog was inspired by you,put it up about the same time as Cathy Horyn put up hers…although I never found the guts to approach fashionably dressed strangers…=)

    Dear sartorialist, it was great hearing you speak today! The conversation was very interesting, especially given the distinct voices of each blogger panelist present.

    Just to echo the thankful comments above, thank you for your blog! Your ability to capture the subtle beauty in details is a service to all of us who are still in the process of learning and discovering our own style :)

    I had never heard of this blog until today, when I snuck in during the discussion. I was instantly enthralled with the idea of original high fashion on everyday people being captured by you! I find this very exciting, as I am someone who “treats my body like a canvas” when choosing my wardrobe. I am an art student with such an appreciation for fashion. I always get inspired for my OWN new looks every time I find an exciting piece of clothing, either vintage, store bought, or from my mom’s old closet. And I always feel good wearing the creations I put together for each new season. Its like I’m my own fashion designer. I’m just trying to say that its really charming and special that you are spotlighting people who go that extra step to look and feel great in they’re own skins. The sense I get, when I leave the house in the right colours, textures, and materials is awesome! Hope you snap a shot of me someday!

    I loved your talk yesterday, and wrote about it on my blog, for those of you who are interested. You stand for so much: the art/fashion melange, the power of blogs, and hope for the common person. Keep up the great work.
