Current & Future Projects
As the Black Lives Matter movement has gained momentum in both the UK and the US, so has the intolerance for criminalizing an entire genre in the music industry. By exposing the institutionalized racism and prejudicial nature of the allegations against Grime artists, these accusations lose their credibility as efficient policing tools and thus have no grounds for criminalization (Fatsis, 2019).

There is an ‘edginess’ to the study of fashion and beauty, a critical edge, certainly, yet also something else – an unease. There is always risk involved in crossing the lines between disciplines, working at the limits of existing knowledge and, importantly, exploring the liminal and indeterminate zones that constitute the complex relationships between garment, body and identity, ‘outer’ and ‘inner’, ‘surface and depth’ (Leeks 2017, 6).
Yet what these authors show is that politics and fashion have always run side by side. The old becomes the new through a different lens; fashion is hacked.

Meet the Illustrator
Hannah is a (mostly) self taught multi-media artist living in Vancouver B.C.
She attended Emily Carr University for 2 years studying Illustration, but eventually dropped out after realizing art school was a bit of a scam and could teach herself most things with the help of the internet.
She is currently taking on commissions and hustling for self sufficiency through art.
