April 02, 2016

The 2016 Experimental Fashion Event is designed, directed, and produced by the artists from the MICA Fiber Department's year-long Multi-Media Event class. Together, they will collaboratively transform Baltimore's Lithuanian Hall into a venue for innovative fashion, costume design, performance art, and soft sculpture. This annual event features individually crafted bodies of garment-based work exploring the intersection of fashion and art. ‘Hoi Polloi’ comes from the greek word πολλοί meaning “the people,” or the common folk. We, the designers of this experimental fashion event, come together in a single collaboration from the diverse masses. We seek to challenge the normalcy of fashion with signs of process, material, and meaning. From themes of darkness to ultimate joy surrounding the human experience, Hoi Polloi: An Experimental Fashion Event is a collaboration that these designers are thrilled to showcase. The event represents a variety of concepts and skill sets, with work speaking to the performative nature of fashion and the overlapping of the runway, the stage and the theater of the streets. The evening will involve more than 300 people, including designers and their models and performers. Designers: Caroline Creeden, Taylor Dunn, Lo Ashford x Stella Lee, Jenelle Legge, Sarah Lo, Elizabeth Nguyen, Zach Snyder, Kat Zotti, Tess Wypkema
