A conversation between Thom Browne, 2012 National Design Award winner for fashion design, and Matilda McQuaid, Deputy Curatorial Director and Head of Textiles at Cooper Hewitt.

Thom Browne is guest curator of Thom Browne Selects, which features mirrors, frames, and reflective wallcovering chosen by the designer from the museum’s permanent collection, as well as Browne’s own possessions. The exhibition addresses and draws on the tensions between individuality and uniformity, which are recurrent themes in Browne’s work and are also the subject of this discussion.

Thom Browne Selects is on view at Cooper Hewitt March 4 through October 23, 2016.
