On February 14th, 2016 the Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective held a public event and participatory activity at Kranzberg Arts Center with Stitchers Teen Council with the guidance of guest artist and fashion designer Qristyl Frazier called Project Perception: A Reality Runway Show. MC Mr. K.P. Dennis and Ms. Frazier guided the audience through a fun exploration of the relationship between perception and clothing through music, game, and makeovers using repurposed clothing from Avalon Exchange to consider biases people may form about individuals based on attire. Susan Block from The Designing Block was on hand to teach the Stitchers Teens how to walk the runway.
Very special thanks to the parents and teens and to the program sponsors!
