3rd Annual TOKION Creativity Now Conference

We are working like mad to get the new 'Moving Fashion' programme launched at the end of this week: more of that later. Deadlines are tight not least because I am flying out on Thursday to 'moderate' at the 3rd Annual TOKION Creativity Now conference, held at the Great Hall of The Cooper Union in New York this weekend. SHOWstudio presented last year and it was a very interesting mix of keynote speakers and panels on the key themes represented by the magazine (music, art, fashion, design, film, etc.).

Personally, I'm convening a panel on 'Design and Grace', featuring Julie Verhoeven, Laurent Fetis, Elisabeth Arkhipoff and Jeremy Blake, but other sessions include: Antony from Antony & the Johnsons, William Eggleston, Todd Haynes, Richard Prince, Stephen Shore and Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation).

If you're coming, be sure to identify yourself!
