In a country that spans more than 3.8 million square miles, nature is as diverse as it is abundant, and our Fall II & Winter I custom prints, fabrics, and color schemes pay tribute to America's natural frontiers and the story of the American immigrant.
This year, no ideas are as critical as the ones our country will consider on election day. Our Fall II & Winter 2016 show is a tribute to the American democratic process, and the diversity of those who participate in it. From gender roles to the refugee crisis, our fave celebs brought the issues to the runway.
When we founded Opening Ceremony 14 years ago, we were inspired by the Olympics, and its ability to foster cultural exchange. This year's show returns to the theme. It takes the form of a pageant. Pageants are known for enforcing traditional beauty standards, but our "Pageant of the People"" subverts this norm. Inspired by the American immigrant experience, it is a space where unconventional beauty-and ideas-are celebrated. Our pageant has no judges.
