Call 4 Fashion Designers and Visual Artists
Toronto Alternative Arts and Fashion Week 2011

April 25-29, 2011

Toronto Alternative Arts and Fashion Week is looking for contemporary fashion designers and visual artists to showcase their work for the upcoming festival in April 2011.

From contemporary fashion to street wear, to experimental ideas and avant-garde collections, Toronto Alternative Arts and Fashion Week features over 50 runway shows from the best emerging and established, national and international designers, setting the standard for a new era of cutting edge presentations on the catwalk.

Toronto Alternative Arts and Fashion Week exhibits photography, short films, videos and large projections from over 100 emerging and acclaimed, national and international artists annually. In addition, we showcase cutting-edge, dynamic and forward-looking performances from performance artists, fashion designers and dancers along side sculptures, installations and large multimedia art works that reflect on the notion of the body, clothing and fashion.

We are currently accepting proposals in:

Fashion Design
Performance Art
Installation/ Sculpture

• Submitted proposals should reflect on the notion of clothing, the body, fashion and the 2011 theme “Fashion Schematics”

Thematic Approach:

The 2011 theme “Fashion Schematics” explores the messages, systems, schemes, symbols and concepts inherent in the notion of fashion, through photography, video, fashion design, performance, installation and music. The festival will look at the ways we create visual dialogues and make sense of the world through fashion and creative expression. “Fashion Schematics” will examine how we build the systems in which we function, the strategies we use in creating our identities and the messages we convey through codes, currencies and narratives.
