During New York Fashion Week SS17, I took eight models (four on Saturday, four on Sunday) and went downtown outside of NYFW’s largest venues in the Meatpacking District to do a performance. Guerrilla style, we went uninvited, covered in fur and successfully started an interesting dialogue. A lack of facial expression, completely silent, breaking into peoples spaces and in robotic, sedated postures–– mimicking my personal sentiments towards the world of fashion and American society as a whole. The fashion world has cultivated a very specific way of seeing; creating identities for us before we can even have the chance to make them ourselves. The work also confronts the concept of value, and why we place it in the items and things we do. The coats reveal truths, are non-apologetic, and are all heavily layered with meaning. Being the person who turns around and sees a statement on a garment, that already holds so much value, controversy and power in our world, is either so aggravated or exhilarated, that–– that is the point.
