TimesTalks Art & Design Festival: David Rockwell and Isabel Toledo Interviewed by Vanessa Friedman

Tony Award winning set designer David Rockwell (She Loves Me) and Tony nominated costume designer Isabel Toledo (After Midnight) are doing a “Times Talk” on Friday, May 18 at 4 PM at The Times Center (242 West 41st Street).

They will discuss their passion for design , inspirations, and their respective versatility: David also designs hotels, restaurants and performance spaces while Isabel has designed for ballet and has her own very successful clothing line, and their shared commitment to charitable causes, including DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS). Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to hear from the prolific architect and the Cuban-American fashion designer who shares a seemingly boundless versatility. The Rockwell Group merges architecture, theater, craftsmanship and technology to create unique narratives for hotels, restaurants, performance spaces, work environments and Broadway productions. She earned worldwide acclaim for designing Michelle Obama’s Inauguration dress and matching overcoat and with her husband and frequent collaborator, the illustrator Ruben Toledo, designed new sets and costumes for the Miami City Ballet’s 2017 production of “The Nutcracker.”

The discussion will be moderated by The New York Times fashion director Vanessa Friedman.

The special event is part of the TimesTalks Art + Design Festival in conjunction with NYCxDESIGN— a daylong series of three provocative conversations exploring the intersection of art, architecture, fashion, and design.

TimesTalks Art & Design Festival: David Rockwell and Isabel Toledo: Friday, May 18, 2018 at 4:00PM at The TimesCenter, 242 West 41st Street.
