“Survival Is an Art: The Last Ship Experience” launched by the TNT

Monday, June 30, 2014

Last weekend, TNT launched an exquisite Survival Is an Art: The Last Ship Experience exhibition to celebrate the new post-apocalyptic television series drama called The Last Ship. Based on a novel of the same name, and written by William Brinkley a well-known American journalist also known for his 1956 novel, Don’t Go Near the Water.

During the exhibition, which took place at the DIA 545, the guests enjoyed an amazing fashion show consistingof 20 looks designed by a respected German couture designer Irene Luft as well as gas masks originally designed by artists Tom Banwell, Bob Basset, Singer Blake, Wren Britton, Gary Lockwood and Nathan Vincent.

The Last Ship is a story about global catastrophe and the crew of a Navy destroyer determined to save the planet. This served as the main inspiration for the whole exhibition. The gas masks symbolized how people can prevent an airborne virus and the detailed gowns were created to reflect our current obsession with the end of the world. Many A-listers came to see this incredible collaboration between the fashion and entertainment world. Among the attendees were – Eric Dane and Rhona Mitra as well as the series executive producer Hank Steinberg. Further spotted were: Peter Rosenthal, Jeremy de Koe, Pete Sanders, David Gursky, LuAnn de Lesseps, Chiu-Ti Jansen, Michelle Gerber Klein, David Prau, Amy Purssey, Megan Purssey, Denise DeLuca, Margie Beck, Natalie Johnson, Keisha Taylor, Jeffrey Katz, Linda Katz and many others.
