How does fashion heal & help embody your fullest self? Using an intersectional lens, we’d like to talk about how to de/re/construct fashion, beauty, & desirability (ie, ways power is re/assigned through gender, class, race, colonialism, & other forces that difference bodies).
This video series is an attempt to explore these questions by seeking video-narratives highlighting QTPOC voices about fashion politics (identity, embodiment, the industry, language, reading, & resistance) and will set the stage to de/re/construct and do power/oppression/empowerment mapping, using images/lqqks as tools to discuss oppressive and liberatory fashions in mainstream and various communities & subcultures.
This video series was originally created for use in our workshop titled Re/De/Constructing Your Lqqks in the Fierce Fashion Future track at the 2013 Allied Media Conference (AMC) in Detroit.”

Yesterday at #amc13 I successfully taught four people how to sew at the #fierceff disco tech station! They all walked away with a new tote bag. This was my first time teaching a group to sew, and it went really well. Pretty exciting!
