Elise (@elisenishiyama) was sashaying around the MCA during the museum's inaugural Prime Time event, looking like a mermaid dressed for a night on the town. Her look is sexy, edgy, and decidedly cool thanks to her humble tee and badass motorcycle jacket—she let her flowy fishnet skirt take center stage by pairing it with very casual items. Speaking of center stage, the MCA event was really happening, with performances by Wild Belle's Elliott Bergman and electronic-pop artist Dan Deacon, among many others. There was also a really cool minimart featuring sellers such as Sonnenzimmer and The Pitchfork Review, food by Land and Sea Dept., plus art, of course. Elise was photographed in front of a work by Kris Martins entitled "T.Y.F.F.S.H."—what you see is actually a detail of a huge balloon viewers could get inside.
Elise was featured in my Chicago Reader column as well.
