Designing News in the issue 219 of étapes.
Famous for its fashionale gatherings, Dapper Day brings together thousands of well-dressed guests to celebrate in style at the Disneyland Resort California each year. A highlight of this year's programs is the presentation and reception of I am Dandy with photographer Rose Callahan and author Nathaniel Adams, hosted by Justin Jorgensen, Dapper Day creator.
Callahan and Adams have spent years exploring the fascinating phenomenon of dandyism and visiting contemporary dandies in their homes to document their impeccably designed lives in both words and images. Their book documents the well-kept lives of 57 protagonists of contemporary dandyism with a keen, yet empathic eye. Their carefully composed portraits not only depict the clothes, accessories, and homes of their subjects, but also capture the essence of their lifestyles in thoroughly entertaining and deeply insightful texts.
You're cordially invited to join Let's Talk Dandy on Saturday, February 22, 19:00–21:00. Please RSVP at DapperDay.com.
