Return to press releases

Contemporary Threads pop-up exhibition will be held at the Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee and will feature the designs of eight leading contemporary fashion designers working to challenge the fashion status quo. These designers—working across the country, yet all with a Wisconsin connection—push the boundaries of fashion as they challenge traditional definitions of form, function, and ornamentation. The exhibition will highlight one garment from each designer and includes an opportunity to meet the artists.

Fashion Designers

Project Runway alumnae Miranda Levy-Adler, Linda Breshears Marcus, and Katelyn Pankoke, plus notable fashion designers Lynne Dixon-Speller, Shannon Molter, Tama Roberts, Sara Terrell, and Heidi Witz.
