|FAT| Toronto Alternative Arts & Fashion Week returns to the Distillery District, (55 Mill St. Bld. 6) April 21– 24, 2009 from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.
FOUR days of fashion, music, performance and art, each night with a different theme:
Home, Planet, Gutter & Beyond.
april 21 |HOME| Designers and artists explore the place which is most familiar and known to us. The night looks at the meaning of home through culture and history, romance and beauty, power and subtlety, sexuality and domesticity.
april 22 |PLANET| In celebration of Earth Day, |FAT| responds to the challenges of surviving in an increasingly unpredictable planet. By showcasing work that suggests a balance between progress and nature, this night presents artists and designers concerned with sustainability, innovation, technology, evolution and adaptation.
april 23 |GUTTER| Unsettling. Shifting. Extreme. How do we survive in these volatile times? |FAT| explores art & fashion through the current social, political and economic aspects of a place on the edge.
april 24 |BEYOND| |FAT| takes a glance at where we are headed and how we can reinvent ourselves. Artists seek to experiment, play, and dream. They push barriers and challenge conventions. Imagination and the extremes of invention shape possibilities for the future.
Inclusive. Engaging. Diverse. |FAT| builds connections, opportunities and communities. This interactive festival acts as a platform for creators to experiment with fashion, not only as a commodity but also as an art form.
