The goal of my current work is to design, construct, present, and publish a series of visually stunning fashion concepts that explicitly disregard wearability, saleability, and practicality; that embrace advanced definitions of sexuality and gender; and that defy the commercially-mandated boundary between fashion and art world.
Presentation will consist of ongoing performances in innovative and unusual spaces, and will combine live music, original video art, dance, and performance art with a more traditional runway format. Separately, photo shoots of the work will be submitted to concept fashion magazines; presented in a gallery context, along with the actual constructed pieces; and disseminated over the web. The designs themselves will be available to collectors as limited-edition art pieces.
