“I start every collection with one word.” —Rei Kawakubo

Fashion designer Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons reportedly gives a single word as instruction to her pattern makers as they begin working on a new collection. In this spirit, Walker members gave one word (or two) in response to Friday’s A Think & A Drink: Member Event, which included a private tour of Dance Works III: Merce Cunningham/Rei Kawakubo with curator Betsy Carpenter, Walker Cunningham Research Fellow Abi Sebaly, fashion designer Emma Berg, and choreographer, curator, performer, and producer Laurie Van Wieren, followed by drinks and small bites in the Garden Terrace Room.
