DesignLab 20/10: Commonwealth Proper + Emily Bowser

Craig Arthur von Schroeder is the mastermind behind the burgeoning menswear company, Commonwealth Proper, founded to provide clients with intelligent, lifestyle-enhancing garments. Handmade locally by tailors, each “superior fitting shirt” is individually numbered and each style is restricted to a production capacity of 20 units. Based in Northern Liberties, their spring/summer line has inspired artist Emily Bowser, whose large scale, sculptural works incorporate pop related imagery through the application of repetition, excess and multiplicitySupport for DesignLab 2010 is provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Organized by The Galleries at Moore and curated by Gabrielle Lavin.
