11TH EDITION
The April 2016 edition of Fashion Art Toronto titled DRESS CODES looks at the major role fashion plays in constructing identity. Throughout 5 nights of programming; artists and designers interpret clothing as a marker of social status, gender, class, culture, religion, occupation, attitudes and as a form of self expression.
TUES APRIL 12th | Un DRESS looks at sexuality, fantasy and play, examining the body – its freedoms and constraints.
WED APRIL 13TH | gender WEAR explores social, cultural and gender based stereotypes and identity that is non descript by social standards. Art & fashion is mixed up, mashed up, merged and confused, blurring the lines of gender and breaking through cultural and social styles, trends and standards of dressing.
THURSDAY APRIL 14TH | DRESS Accordingly explores the rules and codes of dressing according to a social or cultural group, specific occasion, ritual or belief system. Artists and designers are inspired by traditional clothing, uniforms and costumes worn at functions and celebrations or identifying belonging to a specific group.
FRIDAY APRIL 15TH Counter CODE presents a rejection of the norm and is nspired by rebellion, evolution and innovation that shifts design beyond the familiar and mainstream. From art to technology, environment, and innovation, work presents a dissatisfaction with the traditional mold.
SAT APRIL 16TH | HAUTE Culture explores imagery and clothing that signifies social status. From high fashion to couture clothing, the night presents work inspired by opulence, aristocracy, celebrity, nobility, embellishment and high society.
