The mission of this exhibit is to use fashion and storytelling as a means of promoting the merging of two cultures. Clothing is one form of culture that brings us all together and allows us to express self identity and that of individual culture. We’ll be utilizing denim to represent the working class and through design techniques we’ll hand-paint symbols that represent the merging of Mexican and American cultures to emphasize the emotions and issues in modern day America through the eyes of two Texan artists. It is through fashion that we are able to wordlessly express how politics and social elements have directly impacted the American way of life. It is through fashion that we are able to inspire and unstitch difficult topics that directly affect us.
