Fast-Track Design

An exhibition of fashion, fashion photography and furniture at
Detroit Artists Market complements this year's Detroit International Auto Show.


Special to the Jewish News


onica Sklar respects style
— the retro • funk she
likes to wear and the
varieties she's bringing
to the "Design Show," an exhibit of
fashion, fashion photos and furniture
running through Feb. 2 at the Detroit
Artists Market.
Sklar, who has planned styling for
print and electronic media projects, is
co-curator of the exhibit and has cho-
sen the work of five fashion designers
and five fashion photographers from
the area.
Nicole Barbour, an instructor at the
College for Creative Studies, has
selected work by five area furniture
"Nicole and I work quite separately
and only come together for the aesthet-
ics of the exhibit," says Sklar, 25, a
master's degree candidate at
Eastern Michigan
University. "The show
was conceived to com-
plement the North
American International
Auto Show, and we're keep-
ing that in mind.
"We all enjoy the automo-
tive designs, but we wanted to
showcase other kinds of local
design talent as well. The timing
gives the public a good opportu-
nity to see two downtown shows
in one day.
"People can take in the latest auto
ideas and then stop by the gallery to
eye these other fields."

Emerging Artists

The curators looked for emerging
artists, work quality and a commitment
to careers as they made the final cuts.
Sklar has chosen the clothing of
Eugenia Paul, Laura Rockwood,
Rachael Gabrielle Buckay, Beth
Breidenstein and Nahla Shaaya along
with the photography of Scott Sprague,
Angie Baan, Chris Scalise, Nicola
Kuperus and Emin.
Barbour selected the furniture of
Chris Bennfield, David Gillespie,

Michael Moosh, Gonzalo Rodriguez
and Adam Shirley.
On the fashion front, Eugenia and
Paul Patterson make up the design
team "Eugenia Paul" and have been
working together for 14 years. They
have been making clothing sold at
House of Chants in Ferndale and Olas
of Lansing, and they have done cos-
tume design for Jeff Daniels' Purple
Rose Theatre Company, the Gem and
Century theaters and Wayne State's
Ballet Renaissance.
Beth Breidenstein, a northern
Michigan native, founded Spiral Clothing
in Detroit in 1995. With a concern for
environmental and human rights issues
that often cloud more traditional clothing
manufacturers, she decided to create
products made only from
hemp, organic cotton,
Tencel and

Style magazine, Hour, Metro Times and
Chicago's Venus, as well as Big, an inter-
national magazine published in
In the furniture arena, Gonzalo
Rodriguez, a native of Argentina who
came to Detroit when he was 17, has
had his creations featured in a number
of magazines and has hadhis work
commissioned for many local business-
es. He has exhibited at C-Pop Gallery
in Detroit, the International
Contemporary Furniture Fair in New
York and the Neocom Show
in Chicago.

when shooting fashion models in every-
day situations. Her work has been
shown at C-POP, MONA (Museum of
New Art) and Detroit Contemporary.
Her commissions include spreads in
