Birds of a feather flock together, so why not fans of birds, too? CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist Waris Ahluwalia has taken inspiration for his forthcoming Omnia Vincit Amor (“Love Conquers All”) collection (see a making-of video here) from the photographs of birds in his friend Andrew Zuckerman’s forthcoming book, BIRD, and for Fashion’s Night Out, both Ahluwalia and Zuckerman will be at Barneys New York to give shoppers a preview of their avian artworks. “For the collaboration, I chose seven birds from Andrew’s book and made a limited-edition collection of seven pieces in enamel on silver,” explains Ahluwalia (who—not so coincidentally—also makes a cameo appearance in Zuckerman’s Sundance-screened short High Falls). Zuckerman will be signing copies of his book at Barneys, and the first 150 folks to show up at the event will receive limited-edition House of Waris pins; fans of the Omnia Vincit Amor pieces will have to wait until November to get their hands on them, however. In the meantime, Fashion’s Night Outers taking wing to the Meatpacking District can get their urban bird watch on at the High Line, where Zuckerman, in conjunction with Friends of the High Line, will be projecting video shot in tandem with his BIRD snaps. Word is that a major New York City designer helped organize the installation, and that the same designer will be using images from BIRD in a collection TBD. (As the saying goes, a little birdie told us.)
