In collaboration with:
“Rainbow Connection” is a series of hand cut collages that were inspired by the 2020 Fashion Art Toronto theme, “We Are All in This Together”, an ironic title for the show considering it would later be cancelled due to the onset of the Covid pandemic. The six collages use colour symbolism to explore some of the characteristics of people in the fashion industry: Violet for Mysterious, Blue for Confident, Green for Natural, Yellow for Optimistic, Orange for Creative, and finally Red for Passionate. Using both vintage and modern fashion magazines each collage weaves bits of fashion and fabric with faces and figures to celebrate the diverse community, collaboration and the interconnectivity of the fashion industry. Unfortunately, the series never got a chance to be exhibited but it was still an honor to be chosen for the show.
