2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

pep marie will host a fashion show of apparel co-created with ten black trans and gender non-conforming collaborating models. The show and accompanying booklet will be a celebration of an often ignored, exploited, and attacked aesthetic. These collaborating models will strut the catwalk in their customized pay-what-you-can clothing while investigating a deeper understanding of their own and others’ intersectional race and gender journey in and out of fashion.
