Congratulations Cvllejerx featured in WW
September 18, 2018
From the Bins to the body, MFA in Visual Studies alumni Angélica Maria Millán Lozano and maximiliano have co-constructed an outrageous and magical conceptual fashion project, Cvllejerx, which has been featured at PICA's TBA Festival, honored with residencies at spaces like c3: and now profiled in the Willamette Week. https://www.wweek.com/arts/fas...
Think "nets like chain mail....gold lace veils with zippers to expose the models' eyes, and chunks of soccer net that draped over the back of their heads."
"If we question if a thing can be a garment," says Millán Lozano, "that is usually the best garment."
Cvllejerx (pronounced "kuhl-yuh-HEHR-ex") is not exactly a fashion line. It's sold a few clothes through its guerrilla fashion shows, but has no retail platform or commercial ambitions. All of its materials are up-cycled, and neither Maximiliano nor Millán Lozano has any formal seamster training. Their shows are more like a communal, riotous game of dress-up. There is no runway, and the models style themselves from a heap of clothes Millán Lozano brings in a suitcase.
