I’ve long been an enthusiast underwear as outerwear. I wear bed jackets like cardigans and négligées as dresses. But my most popular pieces are the bras I wear as shirts. I usually pick up a cheap bra and then either embellish it, reupholster it or dismantle it all together to create a unique item that I’d never want to cover up.

Curated by JRV MAJESTY Productions, LEX·IC·A is a monthly celebration exploring the myriad of complex and beautiful ways we share, play, love, suffer and honor one another through performance work and strive to cultivate community. February’s LEX·IC·A spreads collaborative wings to explore daily expressions of hairography, looks, styles and the art of street fashion, featuring runway shows, performances and beats by:

Come sit up close. Catch some glitter.
But! I still need models! Models must be in the Chicago area and be able to make it to Salonathon on Monday, Feb. 25, by about 8:30. All bodies and genders welcome, you must just be willing to publicly model bras. Contact email@example.com for more.
