K8 Hardy’s Fashion Show at Whitney Museum

The K8 Hardy Fashion Show at Whitney Museum this past weekend was a little art, a little fashion and all performance. As Hardy puts it, ‘more experimental theater than an actual fashion show.’ The self-described feminist with a rock ’n’ roll attitude took Whitney Museum by storm. Models in rainbow bright face paint strutted backwards and in slow motion down the runway. At the show’s closing, two models came to a dramatic collapse, acting injured. A collective “All in the name of fashion,” was uttered in the gallery. Hardy hit various thrift stores to collect pieces for her outfits. The repurposed clothing featured paint splatters and drips abd underwear as outerwear. Hardy says she chose these pieces as ‘cultural commentary.’ Her show’s aesthetic stems from her serious opposition to many of the fashion industry’s practices. The Texas native’s recent series of photographs in the Whitney Biennial layered stills, props, and clothing in a playfully dark manner to demonstrate the expectations of fashion and advertising imagery.
