Have I mentioned the Plague Wear Gala?!?
Fellow artists and designers, please join us for the Plague Wear Gala!
To take part, fill out the form, and then email me the images you want to share. If you don't have anything that will work for this theme, have no fear. The deadline is May 1st so there is plenty of time to create some stylish plague wear!
This will be an online gala that will be recorded and shared. We will find a way to set up your own "red carpet" area at home to show off your designs, and I'll share the event at the end of May.
"Clothing to protect oneself from the plague has an historical basis, with long, beaked-nose masks being the most classic and recognizable form of plague wear. This gala will promote awareness on how COVID -19 is increasing disabilities worldwide while at the same time people are acting as though this pandemic will somehow not affect them. Folks with compromised immune systems are required to self isolate or risk their lives because temporarily able-bodied people feel "We can't wear masks forever".
This gala asks-- why not? And why not make them fabulous?
Submit your designs and images for modern day plague wear that helps you combat plagues in high style! "Plague" can be interpreted loosely. These designs can ward off pandemics, social anxiety, and/or depression, for example."
Thanks so much! I am excited to see your creations.
