Splash! dress reconstructed from pool uniforms

Latitude 53 Contemporary Visual Culture is a nonprofit artist-run centre. This dress was created for Splash, a fundraiser held by Latitude 53 in conjunction with Western Canada Fashion Week.

Designers were asked to create a garment for auction using pool uniforms donated by the City of Edmonton. I was given polyester golf shirts and track pants in blue, red, and black, which I transformed into a Mondrian-inspired, colourblocked swim dress with matching cap.
