R.A.W. Textiles Presents: Pre-Soiled Couture.
I will be having a fashion show of wearable art created from discarded, found, and collected plants, refuse, rust and vintage findings! This show will be taking place on September 18th 2010 at Disjecta Gallery. http://www.disjecta.org/main.php
I have been designing, collecting and creating this show for the last year so I can share my vision of beauty with all of you. That beauty could be hiding in corners you would never see, waiting to be discovered and adored.
The opulence and decadence of the 1800's that shaped bodies and divided class is the perfect subject matter for the substructure of such questionable ingredients. Tea bags, rusty bottle caps, roses, and bed sheets to name a few. How soiled is too soiled?
The show is a free event and is not for profit. Your donation will help to fund the efforts of the people, equipment, and materials needed to make the show happen. This will include a kit fee for makeup, lighting, DJ, about 13 models, promotional material, a program (made with recycled paper), and much more. There will also be in-kind donations from various sponsors such as Disjecta, Tazo Tea, Fada Salon, and more to come.
R.A.W. Textiles, founded in 2007 is unique and sustainable. I strive to practice earth conscious methods in every aspect. This ranges from the natural dyes and fabrics I use, to the local employment for my production. Please refer to my profile below for a complete bio.
