androgyny

The Textile Museum of Canada is in the process of creating a community including the fashion industry and young people, and the new Style Advisory Council’s first initiative is a party celebrating the theme of Androgyny.  I am on the council and had the opportunity to create an illustration for the party.  If you are in Toronto please come, it is going to be so much fun and the chance to learn a little more about the connections between textiles, fashion and art with some terrific panelists.

Texstyle: Androgyny

Thursday June 4, 8:00 pm

Presented by the Style Advisory Council.

A Coco Chanel suit. Yves Saint Laurent’s Le Smoking jacket. Ziggy Stardust. Whatever your definition of androgyny, we invite you to wear it on your sleeve on June 4th.

Join us for an ultra-stylish evening in two parts:

8 p.m. “Androgyny in Fashion and Textiles”
, a panel discussion featuring David Livingstone, Mikhael Kale and Derek McCormack; moderated by Patricia Bentley, curator at the Textile Museum of Canada.

9 p.m. Costume party.
Sip an “ambiguous” cocktail, sit for Sephora’s expert team of makeup artists, and admire androgyny-inspired pieces from some of Canada’s top fashion labels, including Andy The-Anh, Bustle, and Greta Constantine. Go behind-the-scenes into the Museum’s collections vault and enjoy a special look at The Cutting Edge exhibition featuring Issey Miyake and Yumi Eto.

Dress: Androgynous. Hint: Go big—best costume wins a fabulous prize!

Cost: $45 Reservation: Required BUY TICKETS NOW

    1. while this is not a criticism of your drawing, i think it’s a shame that androgyny in fashion is usually represented as a masculinized female. it would be nice to see the opposite.
