Textstyle: Androgyny

On Thursday June 4th the Style Advisory Council welcomes you to an “ultra-stylish evening in two parts” at the Textile Museum of Canada.

Called Textstyle: Androgyny the event will feature a panel discussion and costume party where revelers are encouraged to come dressed in their interpretations of ‘androgyny’.

A Coco Chanel suit. Yves Saint Laurent’s Le Smoking jacket. Ziggy Stardust. Whatever your definition of androgyny, we invite you to wear it on your sleeve on June 4th.

Join us for an ultra-stylish evening in two parts:

8 p.m. “Androgyny in Fashion and Textiles”, a panel discussion featuring David Livingstone, Mikhael Kale and Derek McCormack; moderated by Patricia Bentley, curator at the Textile Museum of Canada.

9 p.m. Costume party. Sip an “ambiguous” cocktail, sit for Sephora’s expert team of makeup artists, and admire androgyny-inspired pieces from some of Canada’s top fashion labels, including Andy The-Anh, Bustle, and Greta Constantine. Go behind-the-scenes into the Museum’s collections vault and enjoy a special look at The Cutting Edge exhibition featuring Issey Miyake and Yumi Eto.

Dress: Androgynous. Hint: Go big—best costume wins a fabulous prize!Cost:

general public: $45

Reservation: Required

I welcome any opportunity to get all dolled up and what better occasion than an androgyny-themed evening?
