In 2021, Vogue launched “THE UNITED STATES OF FASHION,” a project highlighting the creativity and craft flourishing throughout the country. Exploring the innovation and entrepreneurialism that defines American fashion, Vogue went across the country from Detroit to El Paso to Indianapolis to Nashville, where the most exciting new designers are creating and designing. Celebrating these creators, artisans, and visionaries, The United States of Fashion: A New Atlas of American Style pays tribute to the democratization of American fashion and the creativity and artisanship that are no longer confined to the runways of New York and Los Angeles. Featuring a wide variety of fashion voices, the book shares how these designers define and identify with fashion today. Never-before-seen photographs and anecdotes come from fashion designers Laura and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte; Jeremy Scott, and Libertine; photographers Alex Webb and June Canedo; and craftspeople Ariana Boussard-Reifel and Ataumbi Metals, to name just a few. A rich tapestry of style in America, The United States of Fashion will appeal to readers interested in fashion, design, culture, and photography.

THE MAGIC FLUTE
Mozart’s miraculous blend of the human and the supernatural, comedy and romance, draws us into a world where a prince, Tamino, and a princess, Pamina, triumph over every obstacle in their search for wisdom and enlightenment and are finally united in love. THE MAGIC FLUTE contains a gloriously varied score, with the lovers’ soulful arias, the stratospheric vocal fireworks of the villainous Queen of the Night, the subterranean depths of the formidable high priest Sarastro, and the folk-like melodies of the lovable bird catcher, Papageno. Lyric Opera brings a critically acclaimed production that pays homage to the silent movies of the 1920s. The Magic Flute runs from November 3 through 27 at Lyric Opera of Chicago, lyricopera.com.
