FashionSpeak Fridays: We are Dandy
Friday, March 10
Join photographer Rose Callahan and writer Nathaniel Adams for an evening dedicated to an international survey of the global dandy community as presented in their new book: We are Dandy: The Elegant Gentleman Around the World.
Around the world, dandies embrace style while respecting their local cultural traditions. From America to Africa to Asia, dandyism is a way of life. It is fashion in the best sense, self-esteem through style. And, in every country, it takes a unique form as dandies draw on the local context and fashion culture to shape their looks. We are Dandy throws open the doors of the wardrobe and explores the dandy as a global phenomenon.
