The Woven Bond
We are a group of artists in Christchurch who, as individuals, all care about different things, whether it is racism, sexism, the environment, or economic inequality. Like fibres in woven cloth, we gain strength by supporting each other. We are designing and printing/painting/creating items of clothing for an anti-fashion show to be held in August. It is anti-fashion in the sense there won't be avant-garde haute-coutere designer clothing modelled by razor-thin pubescent models. Instead there will be recycled clothing, teeshirst and possibly old bald men among the 'models'.
Initially we are collecting ideas and sketches for a large book which will be on public display. People can come in off the street during this time to add to the book if the want. Any and all individuals, regardless of age, sex, or appearance are also welcome to model the clothing in the event. the more diverse the models the better.
