This weekend's Dumbo Arts Festival will include its fair share of fashion-related events, from multi-brand pop-up shops to some of the wackiest spectacles to ever hit either side of the East River. (But more on those, later.) One of the festival's shopping highlights is the Modavanti pop-up, featuring various eco-friendly and ethical fashion brands, like Allison Parris, Amour Vert, Doucette, Study NY, and more.
If that's not nearly kitschy enough for you, how about you stop by the Styrene Lounge (above), where models will be wearing clothes made out of bean bags, and you're invited to lay on them? Another option is artist Stacy Scibelli's Made With Love exhibit, where passerby will be asked to try to figure out how the hell to wear several items of ambiguous clothing—like pants made for three people and shirts without head holes. In other words, it's prime people watching.
