2015 Show Theme

 

The ‘Anti-Hero’ as a Symbol of 'A Makers Movement in America'

A current trend is sweeping across the country wherein people are becoming awakened more than ever before. With this higher consciousness an awareness of our inner selves and our surroundings has increased. A new relationship with our environment has begun. Increasingly young, highly educated people are choosing professions and lifestyles that give them a meaningful connection between themselves and others and with that is an interest in the origins of the things they consume. A visual reference to this desired connection and awareness was envisioned for the 2015 Electric City Couture Show.

The 'Anti-Hero' in this context is the overlooked everyday men and women who work at jobs that keep our society moving and inspired. The people ‘making the donuts.’ Specifically for us, those who are engaged in the mechanics of the creative economy. This could include the previously overlooked professions that are now experiencing a renaissance in contemporary society that are artisan and craftsmanship in nature.
