Fashion Finds A New Way Forward During the Pandemic

  1. Thank you for sharing this information about the fashion show. I am one of the creatives who presented her work during this event. For me what was creative about this event, was not only the use of Bambuser technology but actually, the work WE, FIT’s graduates, shared in the event. I am surprised to read in this article that our names are barely mentioned and the content of the work we shared is not at all present. WE ARE THE SOUL OF THE EVENT. I am missing that content in this piece.

    With a desire to share my voice and what my work is about, I would like to share with you some lines. Please bear with me. There are as well 7 other students whose work, like mine, comes from a culmination of 2 years of research. We are all foreign and have risen above the challenge of finishing a collection far from home, in the middle of a global crisis, and with the challenges that this pandemic has brought on us. We are ROCKSTARS and our work and stories are full of creative energy and light!

    MIY WORK’S NAME IS QUEERCEAÑERAS –
    The collection explores the visual possibilities of Latinx identities’ construction in Argentina, Mexico, and the Latin American community in New York. Through a performative autoethnographic journey, an archive of images was created, resulting in collages to color Quinceañera dresses. Each dress functions as portals to explore femininity and gender in Latinx cultures. They challenge anti-Latinx rhetoric and the constant exclusion of Latinx from the US’s national identity.

    Queerceañeras is part of the project Constructing Identities selected for the Future Graduate Showcase by CFDA, winner of the SUNY PACC Prize, and exhibited in March at the Argentinian Consulate in New York City for the commemoration of Women’s Month.

  2. Wow, gorgeous designs! I like that this is a collaboration between members from different countries – it gives a nice smorgasbord of influence in terms of styles and cultures. This is an innovative way to showcase designs and it’s probably going to be the norm in the future.
