View and purchase photos

Live mannequins in 1950s paper dresses and live models wearing the hottest paper ensembles and body art, paired with an exhibit of custom, vintage and exceptional motorcycles—after dark, for one night only, in an urban exhibition space.

No, it’s not a pop-up cultural event in the trendy Meatpacking District of lower Manhattan; it’s a provocative and cutting edge cocktail party and exhibit at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury.

It may favor shows that elucidate the area’s manu­­facturing history, it may boast a collection of buttons and it may have walls graced by gorgeous, but obviously dated, tonal­ist and Hudson River School paintings—but the Mattatuck isn’t stuck in the past.

No more evidence of that statement is necessary than the details of the event being held from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 1. Entitled “Chrome Couture, Say Yes to the Paper Dress,” the one-night-only party will feature an exhibit of custom, vintage and exceptional motorcycles with an outrageous col­lection of paper dresses. Tickets are $125 each.

According to a museum release, the festive, in­­teractive event will be enjoyed on all three floors of the museum and includes food sculptures, tattoo models, body art demonstrations, psychic readings and strolling tables.

That’s not a typo; they do mean “strolling tables.”

Many of the jaw-drop­ping dresses featured in “The Paper Runway” com­­petition at the 2011 Na­­tional Stationery Show at the Javits Center in New York City will be on display (www.na­­tionalstationeryshow.com).

Students Alexis Mich­aelides and Margaret Car­­roll who attend The Lab­­oratory Institute of Man­­agement (LIM) won the competition for their design entitled “Feather Fantasy.” This winning de­­sign was showcased at Kate’s Paperie dur­ing Fashion Week in September, and will be at the “Chrome Couture” party.

Prof. Marjorie Lee Woo, advisor to the stud­­­ents participating in “The Pap­er Runway” com­petition, was the recipient of this year’s distinguished Teach­ing Excellence Award at LIM College. The own­­er of Marjorie Lee Woo Fine Millinery, she will also be contributing gor­geous paper dresses and headpieces of her own design to the show.

A collection of live man­nequins in 1950s paper dresses and live models by Trantolo Trantolo and the Beauty Mark will be wearing the hottest paper ensembles and body art. Continued…

Historical and outrag­eous paper dresses created by students from the Laboratory Institute of Management in midtown Manhattan will be on view. Exhibitors also include aspiring design students from Kaynor Tech Design Department.

Visual artists Danielle Mailer, Hyun Joo Jung, Lisa Cruse, and Katherine Freygang, whose works have been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the country, will also be featured.

Senior editorial stylist, Georgia Snowden of Ad­­am Broderick Salon Spa, will exhibit a collection of paper dresses inspired by the 1950s including icons Marilyn Monroe, June Cleever, a sock hop, a car hop and a 1950s hostess.

Ms. Mailer, an artist working in Litchfield Coun­ty, has shown her work in numerous galleries in Connecticut and beyond. She has participated in many group exhibitions, two-person shows and in­­dividual shows, including a show with the renowned kinetic sculptor Tim Pren­tice at the Mattatuck Mu­­seum in 2009. She also opened her own gallery in Goshen , where she has an ongoing exhibit of her current work.

Ms. Cruse, a Litchfield County artist, is skilled in all sorts of fabric and thread manipulation, gar­­ment design and embel­lishments. She is currently a vendor, instructor and exhibitor at major sheep and wool shows in the New England area with a focus on knitted and fulled hats and felted embellishments. Her pieces may be found in private collections internationally.

Ms. Freygang, of Crom­well, creates media that describes balanced and creative relationships with the natural world. She artfully promotes health, education and creative problem solving, and currently focuses on energy conservation in towns and schools.

Hyun Joo Jung, orig­inally from Seoul, Korea, has exhibited nation­wide. She is a juried artist mem­ber from Silvermine Guild Arts Center and a member of Westport Arts Center and was a recipient in the entry of Art of the Northeast (2006) and was invited to the artists residency program at I-Park (2006, East Haddam). Her work has been reviewed by Korean Times, Cheshire Herald, Westportnow, and a number of paintings are in private collection in Connecticut, Illinois, New York and Virginia.

Mike D’Occhio of DOC’s Motorcycles in Waterbury is excited to lend his expertise and bikes to the party.

“We are combining his­­tory and elegance by show­casing motorcycles ranging from a 1941 military issued Indian to a modern day, custom built, 160 cubic inch street racer. Both are sure to turn heads for their nostalgic and modern day design features,” he said.

From new state-of-the-art builds to antique bikes, Doc’s selection of motorcycles will get anyone’s heart pumping. Participants will almost be able to feel the wind in their hair just looking at the fast lines and beautifully detailed paint jobs. Continued…
