The purpose of the exhibit was to “examine the work of fashion designers who parallel artists in their conceptual approaches” at a time when “the creative endeavors of art and design are constantly being blurred.” “Skin Tight was conceived around three major categories – the architecture of the body, the sexualized body, and the deconstruction of the body – that reflect contemporary anxieties and suppositions related both to the body itself and the emotional resonances connected to it." (eph) First Edition.
