@Regran_ed from @niq_van_der_aa - The Raven - Apeiromorphic
I want to take this time to thank @jfashionnorth for the opportunity to show at @animenorthcompass this year. It was such a well run show (and doing that aint easy let me tell you) and what they are doing to bridge the cap from #cosplay to #fashion so so important. FASHION IS NOT INDUSTRY! IT IS AN ART AND A CONVERSATION! IT IS THE DIALOGUE BETWEEN A DESIGNER, THE INNER SELF YOU WANT TO EXPRESS AND THE WORLD! IT IS ALIVE, AND IS IT IN EVERYONE. To me fashion may walk in runways, purchased by the rich in New York or Milan BUT! BUT! BUT! FASHION LIVES in the beautiful work being done by independent designers (who are doing this from a place of passion not profit) and the incredible people who support them and give then venues to show their talent. #shotsfired

This photo was so good it needed it own post. SERIOUSLY, @pritzpan is KILLING it, the photo is steller, the chains are hanging the fabric is shimmering and DAT MASK SERIOUSLY!
The Raven was meant to embody the sleek and streamlined quality of the bird, while also capturing the malicious associations through the very “evil queen” aesthetic (Though seriously Raven’s a great and one of those animals the get a bad rep). Total androgyny was the goal with this dress (In contrast to the feminine rooster and masculine humming bird), and it has been worn on different runways by men, women, fluid and non binary individuals.
