Pinned! Opening Reception

  • World Chess Hall of Fame 4652 Maryland Avenue St. Louis, MO, 63108 United States (map)

Join us for the opening night reception for a new exhibit, Pinned! A Designer Chess Challenge which chronicles the process and outcome of the unique challenge of designing a chess uniform.  

PINNED! is a first-of-its-kind designer challenge, developed in partnership with the World Chess Hall of Fame and the Saint Louis Fashion Fund, to celebrate the intersection of chess and fashion. Paired with a consulting Grandmaster, each of the six designers in the Saint Louis Fashion Incubator’s inaugural class—Agnes Hamerlik, Emily Brady Koplar, Allison Mitchell, Audra Noyes, Charles Smith II, and Reuben Reuel—designed a chess ensemble for today’s chess player.
