"Good Taste/Bad Taste" at the Met 6/17

The Met's Costume Institute is one of the highlights of going to the Metropolitan Museum if you a fashion fanatic.  While the Met Gala is out of reach to most, the Costume's symposiums are more approachable.  This year's exhibit is "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations" - a comparison exhibition of the works of Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada.

On Sunday June 17th at 2PM the Met will host a discussion of a similar nature between Iris Apfel, quirky fashion icon, and Tavi Gevinson, editor-in-chief of Rookiemag. "Good Taste/Bad Taste" will be about what style and chic means today.  Panel will be moderated by the Judith Thurman, New Yorker writer.

Panel is free with museum and admission.

Unlike Schiaparelli and Prada, Gevinson and Apfel have met before but this symposium will certainly be a meeting of the eccentrically styled minds.
