dress-up party thursday may 18

In the very first Craft Alert/dispatch I mentioned the Consistent Variable Project, an initiative of Montreal-based designer Clayton Evans where participants are given the same set of materials and have one month to concoct whatever they are inspired to. This past winter, as part of Consistent Variable Project: Trial 2, 13 kits were mailed out accross Canada.
They contained the following:

2m white cotton fabric
1m bright yellow gingham
White sewing thread
A selection of metal fasteners (snaps, hooks and eyes)
A fuzzy white car polishing mitt
Red latex gloves
Blue dye
White embroidery thread
A bag of brightly coloured beads
Stainless steel wire
A clear PVC dish mat
A silver and red cooler bag
Two black permanent markers

The results of this project - some pictured here (Hanging by Zeesy Powers, Dress by Noor Salma Merali), can be seen at I AM A WILD PARTY an event happening this Thursday at the
Toronto Free Gallery. This party is hosted by and marks the launch of not only CVP: Trail 2, but also The Game Show, a playful online collaboration of emerging Canadian artists curated by Daniel Barrow, and the second edition of WORN Fashion Journal (a really cool montreal-based publication very much worth checking out).

Here's the scoop on the party:

"You are invited to I AM A WILD PARTY, Toronto – an evening of new fashion creations, publications,performance and musical treats. ...Come on out in your hottest dancing shoes and sharpest threads to meet local designers and artists. Hilarious MC, Lex Vaughn, will open the doors at 8pm at the Toronto Free Gallery. Play interactive drawing games, see live painting by Tonik Rockonski & Shaun Dhani, a performance by Zeesy Powers (9pm) and rock out to tunes spun by DJs Kids and Explosions, Parallel Park."
