Each day of [FAT] has a theme, and Thursday was “Gutter”. I brought a bag of markers to try something new for sketching the runway.
Breeyn McCarney showed a collection of pretty dresses with clown styling. I talked to her backstage afterwards – she told me that she gets inspired by the darker side of children’s entertainment.
UND showed a militant collection with many pieces made out of a thick vinyl that reminded me of the seats on my family’s ancient Malibu car when I was a kid. The second illustration is a NEVA look – like a sarouel hiked up to become a jumper in turquoise polka-dots, over pink leggings that covered the shoes.
