A couple of weeks ago, I spent my Friday afternoon at The Valentine for their Costume and Textile Collection Mini-Symposium— a total treat for a fashion and art history nerd like myself. There were three speakers: FIT’s Associate Curator Colleen Hill spoke about the school’s upcoming Fairy Tale Fashion exhibition; Caroline Rennolds Milbank took the audience through a tour of fashion’s past in her talk “what we romanticize when we romanticize the past”; and local artist Mo Regulinski shared the process of her latest series, “Regalia: Healing Avatars.”

The evening brought together 250 members of the Beyond Type 1 and the DRIF communities, featuring works by artists living with Type 1: Appleton (known for his Diabetes-inspired street art featuring needles and insulin bottles), Natalie Irish (famed for painting with her lips on canvas) and tattoo artist Darren Brass (of Miami Ink fame). The winners of our “Express Yourself” Art Contest (Michael Natter, Josh Cooper, Camilla Jacobs and Maureen “Mo” Regulinski) were also on display.
