Glam4Good Event

Over the course of the day on July 26, 2013, high-school-aged students participated in Museum Highlights and exhibition tours, makeovers, and a styling workshop in a collaborative event inspired by the exhibition PUNK: Chaos to Couture. The Museum's Multicultural Audience Development Initiative and The Costume Institute partnered with Glam4Good, a non-profit foundation that aims to offer life-changing makeovers, dramatic giveaways, and transformative fashion adventures to everyday heroes.

The tour of PUNK: Chaos to Couture was led by Jessica Glasscock, senior research assistant in The Costume Institute, and the punk-inspired styling workshop was led by Mary Alice Stephensen, style and beauty expert and founder of Glam4Good. Provided with clothing and essential punk fashion accessories—safety pins, tape, paint, studs, etc.—the students were encouraged to "punk-out" their clothes as they embraced the D.I.Y. (do it yourself) themes explored in the exhibition.

The students also heard a presentation from the Met's Chief Audience Development Officer, Donna Williams, on Museum careers, as well as a presentation on careers in fashion by industry expert Anna Maria Bishop.
