On Sunday, December 10, from 12pm to 6pm, Tina Dillman, Director and Curator of The Cass Project, will be hosting a pop-up shop featuring local fashion designer Alicia Marván. Marván, a 2015 MFA graduate of the University at Buffalo, SUNY, will be showcasing her her fall/winter collection, STRATA.
The clothing line, handmade in Buffalo, is inspired by the geologic landscape of the Great Lakes region, specifically the formations of the area’s bedrock. The clothing line is not only stylized and comfy, it’s also made from sustainable materials, including organic wool, repurposed leather and high-performance eco-blends.
Marván established her atelier practice in 2016 with the intentions of bringing certain fashions to Buffalo that were not readily available. Her focus is on style, comfort, warmth, and sustainability.
Guests to the pop-up shop will enjoy complimentary mimosas, wine, and hors d’oeuvres, served by models wearing pieces from clothing line. The designs featured at the event will be available for purchase.
