Freelance Curator

"I learned about the design artists
through my background as a free-
lance curator, the schools I attended
and the portfolios received at the
gallery," says Sklar, who earned a
bachelor's degree in fashion design
and merchandising from Wayne State
University and currently is working
toward a master's degree in apparel,
textiles and merchandising.
"I was picked to work on the
"Design Show" after organizing a
special event at Wayne State
University."
Sklar, who lives in an avant-garde
loft in Detroit with Web
designer and musi-
cian Harlo

internships during a summer in New
York. It was great fun working in the
art section at George magazine, where
John Kennedy Jr. circulated among
us, and assisting with the wardrobe
for Comedy Central."
Sklar, who also helped with an inde-
pendent film while in New York and has
done some fashion writing in Detroit,
says her combination of different experi-
ences has had a major impact on her.
She's decided her favorite
activities involve

Petoskey, has had an interest
in fashion since childhood.
She believes it even could be in her
genes. Her great-aunt, the late Tavy
Stone, was a longtime Detroit fash-
ion writer, while relatives in New
Jersey owned a textile mill.
"I fell in love with Erte-designed
paper dolls when I was a small
child," says Sklar, who grew up in
Southfield and Farmington Hills and
attended religious classes at
Congregation B'nai Moshe and Adat
Shalom Synagogue.
"When I was a junior in college, I
did the clothes styling for bands —
and that's how I met Harlo, who
became my boyfriend.
"I was lucky enough to get two

When she
completes her stud-
ies, she would like to work
for a museum — which means she'll
probably have to move to another city
to find job opportunities.
"I think it's important to showcase
new artists," says Sklar, a lifetime
Hadassah member who wears a
hamsa necklace she bought while
traveling in Israel last year.
"The Detroit Artists Market is a
great gallery for that, especially
because of its educational outreach."
To promote fashion education,
Sklar_will be moderating a free panel
discussion with the designers at 7
p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23.
"It's been very nice getting to know
these artists;" says Sklar, who shops
resale stores to dress herself and
enjoys the fantasy of retro when the
occasions are right.
"As I work with the designers and
take note of the diversity, I'm confi-
dent their individuality has made for
a very strong exhibit." ❑
