“Fashionality” is a newly coined term that refers to the visual culture and semiotics of dress and adornment. Combining the words “fashion,” “personality,” and “nationality,” it suggests the interplay between clothing, identity and culture. Reflecting wide geographic and cultural diversity, this exhibition focuses upon the ways in which the concerns, identities and aesthetics of those living in Canada are expressed, deconstructed and reconfigured through the idiom of dress.

This blog records exhibition-related information, as well as work and events related to artists appearing in the show.

Stellar Review in the Toronto Star

This just in: a rave review of Fashionality by Canada's doyenne of fashion, Jeanne Beker, in conversation with McMichael CEO Victoria Dickenson. Well done, ladies!  The article also appeared in hard copy, in the Wednesday, June 20th edition of the Toronto Star (p E9). The word is out!


This seemed appropriate, somehow . . .  Jeanne Beker with some Canadian fashionistas.

Why do all the links in the Nicole Dextras blog on http://fashionalityshow.blogspot.com/ lead back to the same page? Should there be a link to the exhibit itself?

Hello -- thank you for the notice, but I'm not sure what you mean. I've tried all the links on posts about Nicole, and I can't find any problems from this end. Can you be more specific about the problem? Thanks, and we'll do our best to fix it.
