On the evening of Friday January 21st, 2011, The Petersen Automotive Museum will host a night of fashion, art, and cocktails at the museum's Automotivated: Streamlined Fashion and Automobiles exhibit. The presentation showcases cars from the 1920s & 30s and highlights how the fashion of the era was influenced by the automobiles of the time. The event will be a celebration of the fashion pieces designed by After-School All-Stars, Los Angeles students as they model their stylish attire on the exhibit runway.
Founded by Governor Schwarzenegger, After-School All-Stars, Los Angeles (ASAS-LA) is a leading after-school program provider whose programs educate, enlighten and inspire thousands of students each day through after-school activities centered around health, fitness and nutrition; the visual and performing arts; and youth leadership and community service learning.
After-School All-Stars, Los Angeles brings innovative, cutting-edge enrichment programs to K-12 students that contribute to reducing drug use, crime and violence; while increasing their safety during the after school hours.
The organization serves 11,000 students at 25 schools located in deserving areas throughout LA County. Kobe Bryant is a Program Ambassador.
"For the last few months, After-School All-Star students in [our] fashion design and sewing programs have been researching the fashions and automobiles displayed in the Petersen Automotive Museum exhibit. They have learned about the history of the clothes and cars," says After-School All-Stars, Los Angeles President and Executive Director, Ana Campos. "Students have created their own pieces, made the clothing themselves, and are extremely excited to model their attire at the event."
"During the last 100 years more attention has been devoted to the designs of apparel and automobiles than to the designs of any other consumer goods", says a representative from the Petersen Automotive Museum. "Cars are now as essential to one's self-expression as hats, gowns, and jewels, and it was interesting for the students to learn of the evolution."
With the Automotivated exhibit's last night being January 23rd, 2011; the following Sunday after the benefit, the event will be a highlight for its final weekend at the museum.
The benefit will last from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Attendance helps support After-School All-Stars, Los Angeles' art programs, which are vital to keeping LA communities safe, while bringing opportunities to the families that need them the most.
