Timothy Westbrook Studio presents Timothy Westbrook's debut event. Discovered by scientists in 1887, the Triceratops is theorized to be the last dinosaur standing. That would make her the youngest descendent of plastic bags and all other manifestations of fossil fuel. The triceratops will display the future of her ancestors in a fashion spectacle like no other. 

 

 Building the inspiration for the fashion show “Paleontology of a Woman” is like piecing together unmarked bones to complete a fossil. Inspired by 1887, the year of the Triceratop’s discovery, which is theorized to be the last standing dinosaur, which makes her the youngest relative of fossil fuel, to be showcased in this collection as plastic bags, to be woven into material for many of the looks. Much like an archeologist reclaiming as much as a dig site as necessary, Timothy’s urban mining will lead to a fashion show featuring clothing constructed out of soda cans, bed sheets, vintage wedding gowns, plastic bags, curtains, discarded fabric, and wire hangers. There will also be dinosaur masks inspired by those of Broadway's Lion King. 

 

Looking forward to seeing you in your sustainability chic gala attire September 21, 2013.

Organizer

Timothy Westbrook

Timothy Westbrook hails from Wanakena, NY. He was named the first out-of-state Artist-in-Residence at the historic Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, WI. His work first gained national attention when he spoke at the GreenBiz Conference in New York, NY. He then appeared on Season 12 of reality television show, Project Runway. While rejecting electricity and processes that harm the “natural world” he builds his artwork out of that which is rejected by society. Using fairytales as an environmentalist metaphor he attempts to approach this somewhat gloomy topic with playfulness and lax sensibility. His current work focuses on collaborations with local artists to tell a story using the detritus accumulated during the production of their own work.
