Fashion Designer Miguel Adrover To Speak After Premiere of Documentary Film

Miguel AdroverPratt Institute’s Departments of Fashion and Film/Video will present the first U.S. screening of Call it a Balance in the Unbalance, a documentary film by Regine Lettner about the tumultuous career and visionary work of avant garde fashion designer Miguel Adrover. In a rare appearance, Adrover will speak with Pratt Institute Fashion Chair Jennifer Minniti immediately following the premiere. The event is free and open to the public, with limited seating. The film depicts Adrover, a Marjorcan farmer’s son, and chronicles his meteoric rise to fame in the late 1990s and the unforeseen events that led to the loss of his financial backing in 2004. Adrover’s work will be included in an exhibition on punk fashion at The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art this spring.
