(iBIZA, BALEARIC ISLANDS SPAIN)
This year in 2017 we are taking the Fashion for Conservation team on our first global tour with Elephantasia, "fashion fighting for elephants." Our opening event started us off with a bang! Our European segment of the Elephantasia global tour took place in the exotic venue Atzaro as the sun set over the rest of the dreamy Baleric Island, Ibiza!

This series surrounds the longing to express ones self within the picturesque world fashion.
In longing for belonging and when one winds up in the world of fashion, self expression becomes visual and wearable. In is said that an outfit ensemble "speaks for itself," and perhaps for the wearer behind it. As if fashion makes up for other forms of communication, fashionistas (especially fashion media icons) are commonly seldom spoken in the context of fashion weeks and like industry events. Fashion as a social construct is often a trend of distancing ourselves from each other veils, hats, sunglasses, oversized coats, etc.
To increase communication within the fashion world, my team has been working to incorporate other forms of expression into our work, including dance (ie. the photo series above), spoken poetry, live music, fine art, and even audience interactive activities in the context of fashion events (example of one of these multi-media fashion events is Runway to Peru which you can witness here)
As I have been inspired by my work in fashion and music to integrate other forms of expression into fashion, I hope to inspire both my close colleagues in the fashion and general audience for our events to explore other forms of communication, beyond the clothing,
