Dust off your most eccentric outfit (you know, the one you’ve been meaning to wear for ages) because Toronto’s most exciting 5-day fashion and art event returns April 18-22! A beautiful cacophony of runway shows, fashion performances, art installations, photo exhibits and short fashion films, Fashion Art Toronto has been bringing it for 12 years; and this year’s line-up is KILLER.
Highlights include Brit Wacher’s art-inspired wearables, award-winning designer Xue Liang’s couture wearables created from up-cycled unconventional materials, and fibre artist Jon Riosa’s articulate collection of wearable sculpture…or physical constraints. Intrigued? WE ARE.
Speaking of eye candy, many of our fave [FAT] alums are back on the runway like With Love Lingerie, House of Etiquette, Mitra Ghavamian and Padina Bondar.
Taking inspiration from this year’s theme #FASHIONEVOLUTION, The Dressing Room Project features art installations that explore fashion from a social, environmental and conscious standpoint, including a wearable installation by our very own UNCUFFED Leather and Susan Avishai’s installation of deconstructed and quilted shirt pieces sourced from second-hand shops.
We want to send two readers (and their +1’s) to this year’s Fashion Art Toronto. (PS. There are THREE ways to enter!)
