Queer Magic: Reimagining Fashion Through D.I.Y. Methods
Mentor: Jamie Kemp
What is the relationship between identity and fashion? This keystone, based in Queer theory and Do-It-Yourself fashion design, transforms six queer and gender nonconforming individuals into fantasy creatures. In my presentation, I challenge the hegemonic notions the mainstream fashion industry perpetuates by making queer individuals visible in conceptual D.I.Y. looks. I undertook this project because of a desire to share how confidence affirming queer & D.I.Y. fashion can be, shunning normative appearance expectations. The highlight of my project was working with my models, many expressed joy, confidence and gender euphoria in exploring an ethereal side of themselves.
