    Yes, SCAD FASH MUSEUM OF FASHION + FILM is an educational tool for students. But it’s also a window for the community into the worlds of fashion and film as means of artistic expression. The new museum opened with a boom in October 2015, and attracted more than 10,500 attendees to exhibitions around the late design powerhouse Oscar de la Renta and the famously flamboyant London-based artist Daniel Lismore. Programming continues to slay. Carolina Herrera’s Refined Irreverence (on display through Sept. 25) showcases a selection of runway looks and gowns such as Kristen Stewart’s wedding dress from Twilight and more worn by Lady Gaga and Michelle Obama, among others. SCAD FASH goes beyond simply displaying works on mannequins to take a different look at fashion’s cultural impact. Grand Divertissement à Versailles, Vintage Photographs by Bill Cunningham offered a series of black-and-white photos from the late, famed street photographer of one of fashion history’s grandest showdowns between American and French designers, nicknamed “The Battle of Versailles.” SCAD students work as docents, leading visitors through installations (that they usually help assemble) with iPads in hand, offering further insight. Talk about extra credit. less...

    Deck Specks
    If you need proof that Atlanta is a bona fide skate town, look no further than Deck Specks.

    If you need proof that Atlanta is a bona fide skate town, look no further than Deck Specks. The independent company makes handcrafted sunglasses (about $95/pair) out of used skateboard decks - hence the name. Started by co-owner Luke Bullard, Deck Specks is a bare-bones six-man operation run by real skaters. They take used skateboards, donated by Atlanta skaters and such shops as Little Five Points' Stratosphere, and individually de-grip each board before cutting out the frames, planing, and sanding each pair down. The wood-grain finishes retain the skateboards graphics and stains. And though multiple glasses are cut from each board, every pair is unique. So in addition to authenticity points, wearers can take pride in knowing that there won't be any shady replicas within eyeshot. www.deckspecks.com. less...
