Where do we draw the line between object and outfit, art and fashion? Katie Stout is a young designer known for her playful aesthetic and her blurring of lines between art and object—as evidenced in her stuffed chairs (think teddy bear meets chair), quirky rugs, lamps that look like they’re made out of Play-Doh, and more. Miami-based collector Al Eiber interviews Strout about the objects we wear and use, versus those we view. Co-hosted by Fashion Project and Gallery Diet.
