Oh, Third Ward. You almost always have ridiculous events. One of my fondest memories of 2k10 was seeing an entire band dressed as chickens performing there while sipping craft beer. This is no exception.c/o 3rdWard.com:
The Chunky Lens World Release & Gallery Show
Presented by Hipstamatic, GQ Taiwan & 3rd Ward
Thursday, February 10, 2011, 7-9pm
195 Morgan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
FREE Admission includes Chunky app, gallery show, live music & drinks
He’s a creative director, a fashion world star, and a 3rd Ward Member. Now, Chiun-Kai Shih (Member since ’08) is a Hipstamatic Lens.
Inspired by Chunky's jet-setting lifestyle and moody/glam aesthetic, Hipstamatic developed a brand-new Chunky lens with never-before-been-seen features.
Experience what the Chunky lens is all about at this interactive gallery show. Download the Chunky lens app for free and project your photos live at 3rd Ward and online on the Hipstamatic and 3rd Ward websites. Plus, meet Chunky himself and see Chunky's GQ Taiwan fashion spread with Taylor Fuchs (shot entirely on the iPhone) before it reaches the newstands later this month.
If you’re a fashion-type, art enthusiast, app-buying addict, or just looking for a fun Thursday night, stop by. We’ll have music, free drinks, “fashion sets” for your livestreamed photos, and instructions on how to download your Chunky lens for free.
With support from ILFORD.
RSVPs are required at www.3rdward.com/rsvp
* The limited-edition Chunky lens will be free to download for the duration of New York Fashion Week, February 10-17, as part of Hipstamatic's FashionPak. The new lens will go live on February 10th and is available for download worldwide.
