From the SPD Archives: Vegetable Costumes at SPD Gala 28, 1993

From the SPD Archives: Vegetable Costumes at SPD Gala 28, 1993 SPD50f.jpgThere were many memorable moments at the SPD Gala 28, held in May 1993. One of the most vivid visual highlights of the evening was the collection of costumed vegetables that were on display. The costumes were designed and modeled by senior fashion design students from Parsons School of Design, and included fanciful takes on broccoli, an onion, garlic, a giant pumpkin, and more.

Gala 28 was hosted by Rhonda Rubenstein, art director of Esquire, and B.W. Honeycutt, art director of Details. It was held at the Celeste Bartos Forum of the New York Public Library. On the turn page there's a gallery of more vegetable constumes.
