A WORKSHOP: WEARABLE ART AND THE BODY
Instructor: Michael Cepress
Holding a BA in Art from the University of Wisconsin and an MFA in Fibers from the University of Washington, Cepress has worked professionally as a designer and educator for 10 years. An intense interest in the male wardrobe and tailoring traditions has led Cepress to focus on the design and production of menswear and theatrical costume, and he has written on clothing’s relationship to gender and popular culture. Cepress is a 3-time nominee for the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Art Award, and is seeing attention worldwide. Reaching beyond the bounds of fashion, Cepress’ work has traveled
internationally as part of art and fashion exhibitions in London, Athens, Luxembourg and Antwerp. He has worked as costume designer for productions with director Robert Wilson, and his costumes and fashion collections continue to see attention with publication in FiberArts, DANCE Magazine, Seattle Magazine, Seattle Metropolitan and multiple books on the subject of wearable art.
