East Hampton - Nine of America's most prominent fashion designers, including Tory BurchBetsey JohnsonDonna KaranCalvin KleinReed KrakoffRalph LaurenNicole MillerElie Tahari, and Vera Wang will be featured along with artists such as Robert WilsonStephan Weiss and 
Arthur Becker in “The Art of Fashion in the Hamptons," an exhibition celebrating art and fashion and life on the East End of Long Island.  The show will open to the public on Aug. 15 and is co-curated by Pamela Fiori, editor in chief, Town & Country, and Stan Herman, designer and past president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). 
“The exhibition uses both art and fashion to depict how for decades the Hamptons have attracted and nurtured artists, designers, society mavens, as well as ordinary folks, from the locals to weekend renters," said Ruth Appelhof, executive director, Guild Hall. “While some come seeking inspiration from the light, and others are rejuvenated by the social life, the magical lure of the East End endures. This exhibition pays homage to the diversity of art and fashion that co-exists here." 
Art on loan from Guild Hall's permanent collection as well as local artists will be exhibited in vignettes created by each designer, all of whom have ties to the East End. This is the first collaboration of its kind and, as such, sparks with creativity. 
A free reception will be held for Guild Hall members from 4 p.m to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 15, with a free public viewing from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. There is a special preview on Friday, Aug. 14, for guests of Guild Hall's Summer Gala.
