1:00 PM-6:00 PM Fashion Pop-Up
Sunday we will have our second day of a Fashion Pop-up shop featuring queer designers and artist's work and clothing for sale with some items for free for Black queer community members: Including, Chella Man, Rebirth Garments, milo stancato, Vincetta, Malcom-x Betts, B. Anele, and Telfar Tival.
We will gather for a fashion pop-up shop featuring queer designers and artists from NYC and beyond. This weekend will highlight artists working in fashion and art who will transform the space into a site of ideas exchange, and making. Topics include what fashion has to offer transness, how clothing can signal safety and joy in an ableist world, and how contemporary photography and fashion might function as a vital tool for self representation and preservation in BIPOC, queer, disability communities.
Trans Fashion Roundtable with Viscose
4:00 pm - 6:00 PM Viscose Roundtable
This roundtable , organized with Viscose Journal, will bring together key fashion industry figures to discuss histories of trans work in the fashion industry. Moderated by activist and artist Tourmaline, who recently co-designed Chromat's gender-inclusive “Collective Opulence Celebrating Kindred" swimwear collection. The roundtable will feature trailblazers such as Tracey Norman and Connie Fleming, alongside contemporary industry leaders such as photographer Cruz Valdez and Interview fashion director, Dara Allen.
The forthcoming issue of Viscose Journal, on the topic of transness, is slated for publication in partnership with the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art in Autumn 2022. It is co-edited by Viscose Founding Editor-in-Chief Jeppe Ugelvig with UK-based fashion theorist Alex Esculapio and New York-based writer and critical theorist Che Gossett.
