A space for display, photography, collaboration and experimentation, Citizen Stylist is an experiment in disrupting the fashion designers' purist intentions through public participation: exploring and celebrating disruptions and diversity. This is a short pilot project with the hope that this project can be repeated.
In Citizen Stylist traditional purist fashion graduate creative photographs will be augmented with second and third opportunities to mix up collections and individual stylists through photography. The designers will be invited to submit their clothes for this creative experiment and they may also be the stylists. The stylists will be in full control of selecting the clothes from those available and the way the clothes are worn, and the stylist can mix the outfits with their own existing clothes.
The stylists are people with an interest in fashion and associated with fashion schools internationally. Once dressed the stylist will be photographed by Margo Barton, and the resultant images will become part of an ongoing record exhibited online and physically.
