Thursday night, I attended the Tatiana Tejedor/Joel Benjamin Reception at the School of Fashion Design on Newbury Street. It was an intimate gathering for an installation of Tejedor's fashion design and Benjamin's photography. Mannequins showcased her graphic, screen printed pieces, while his photographs of the designs lined the walls.
Tejedor's designs reminded me of Mary Katranzou's wildly graphic dresses and gowns. Both designers create wearable patterns using pictures of nature and outdoor environments. One of my favorite pieces of Tejedor's was her suit covered in city lights.
