Some of the most consistent curating in this city routinely comes out of the Fashion Art Department at the Cincinnati Art Museum. Between them, Associate Curator of Costume & Textiles Cynthia AmnÃ©us and Curator of Decorative Arts and Design Amy Miller Dehan are largely responsible for the success of such recent shows as Art Deco
, Wedded Perfection and Nick Caveâ€™s Meet Me at the Center of the Earth
. As their work so often involves costly/labor-intensive restoration and conservation of vintage costumes and textiles, fundraisers are a necessary part of the job. This coming Friday at the Bertke Electric Warehouse in Northside, Cincinnati Fashion Week will host a fashion show and installation featuring fashion stylist and collector Tony Tiemeyerâ€™s vintage 1950s to 1980s couture, featuring a presentation from native son fashion designer John Bartlett. All proceeds benefit the Fashion Arts department of the Cincinnati Art Museum. Front row seats are $50; general admission tickets are $15 pre-sale, $20 at the door. 7:30 p.m.-midnight. Friday, Oct. 12. Bertke Electric Warehouse, 1645 Blue Rock St., Northside.
