The 2016 edition of Fashion Art Toronto titled DRESS CODES looks at the major role fashion plays in constructing identity. Throughout 5 nights of programming; artists and designers interpret clothing as a marker of social status, gender, class, culture, religion, occupation, attitudes and as a form of self expression.
From April 12-16, DRESS CODES will present fashion collections and artistic work that responds to 5 sub-themes, with a different theme presented each night: HAUTE Culture, Un DRESS, Counter CODE , DRESS Accordingly and Cross DRESS.
