Last month I attended this seminar on contemporary museum architecture in Kiasma, Helsinki. I entered the theater where they hold these kinds of functions about 10 minutes before the first presentation and most of the seats were already taken. My jaw dropped when I saw the audience. Never seen anything like it before. It seemed everyone was wearing black, grey, browns or muted whites (only as an complementary colour, not as the main one, mind you). There were suits. And elegantly wrapped scarfs. Knitted stuff. And reading glasses pushed up on one’s head.

I had a bright red hoodie. And faded jeans.

Dear me. Talk about being underdressed.
