Fashion as Art Exposed
On June 16, 2012, the McMichael Canadian Art Collection welcomed guests to the inaugural fundraising event Fashion as Art: Exposed! Host Jeanne Beker, in collaboration with the Fashion Design Council of Canada, celebrated Canada’s Group of Seven Fashion designers Joeffer Caoc, Comrags, Greta Constantine, David Dixon, Thien Le, Lucian Matis, and D’Arcy Moses, by showcasing their original pieces created exclusively for the night. The gallery’s dedication to collecting Canadian art made McMichael the perfect location for honouring national talent and raising funds for Canadian art. Over 400 guests savoured a unique and stirring exhibition of fashion portrayed as art: the blending of two of our nation’s most vibrant forms of expression. Against the backdrop of the gallery’s scenic property complemented by a savoury selection of refreshments and music, the night sparkled with an atmosphere of creativity and innovation.
