James Kidd—Tara Jane ONeil and the Sunlan Spirit Singers / Shaina Mote Runaway Feeling: Fashion Performance Pieces

  • to This is a past program

With studios across the hall from each other 2010-2011 in a funky old east L.A. warehouse building, Jmy James Kidd and Shaina Mote inspired and supported each other to design clothing collections for people to feel beautifully comfortable and expressive in all their moods and feelings. Jmy James Kidd uses the essential elements of dance, the raw human body moving from relaxed to ecstatic states and fuses them with into her designs to create custom clothing for all people. Shaina Mote melds technical aspects from pattern making with an experimental approach to draping by playing with notions of timelessness, reinvention, and reinterpretation for her wearer.  

Jmy and Shaina use the Gold Stage platform in hopes of bringing a new perspective to the means in which we view and experience fashion, as an alternative to a runway setting.
