The line between wearable art and fashion is blurred by cultural frenzies around wares such as Lady Gaga’s meat dress, hoof shoes and headpieces, not to mention the fascinator display at the recent royal wedding. It’s no wonder Princess Beatrice’s pink bow hat by milliner Philip Treacy got the most attention. Great fashion inspires mimicry but great art inspires debate.

Unless you’re a Victorian with nerves of steel or a Gulf Islander on a Saturday night, such creative clothing displays are rare around these parts.

However, an upcoming runway show at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria features an eclectic mix of wearable art pieces from corsets made with kitchen utensils and steampunk-inspired accessories, to a lifetime collaged on a cloak and hats made to resemble hairpieces.

“There are already so many places to see art and to see fashion but not wearable art,” said organizer Jennifer Olson, who is also a painter and framer. “We really wanted to feature wearable art as an artistic medium.”

The event is a fundraiser for the gallery by its volunteer associates, the same group responsible for the popular annual house tour.

In its second year, Art Attire features a juried selection of original wearable artpieces in a runway fashion show, a cocktail party, live jazz and a silent auction of silk scarves hand-painted by local artists including Robert Amos, April Caverhill and Dale Roberts. A group of jewelry artists’ work will be on display so attendees can get a closer look at the pieces.

The 18 artists showcased on the runway show range from fashion designers and sculptors to mixed-media artists and a chain maille maker. One, Kate Robinson, is an 18-year-old university student in Vancouver. In high school she sewed and produced fashion shows. Her bodice-zipper piece Modern Antiquity is among the more fashion-forward works in the show.

Dan Miller’s chain maille and Ian Finch-Field’s steampunk prosthetics will appeal to history and fantasy buffs, as will Fariba Mirzaie’s whimsical tree and rose garden dresses, each a sculptural triumph of artistry and use of the body’s natural movement.

“Fashion and art were in my blood from the age of five,” said the North Vancouver designer, who grew up in Iran. “It’s one of the ways I can express myself and the nature of humanity.”

Recycled bicycle tubes become slick garments with lace-like cutouts in works by Victoria’s Sybil Turnbull, Sooke artist Juno displays masterful paintings on cloaks and Sunshine Coast artist Tam Harrington’s kitchen utensil corsets and bras are both admirably crafted and sexy.

Local milliner Tierre Joline is one of my personal favourites and likely the best-kept fashion secret in Victoria. Joline’s studio is a treasury of her skill with felting and creativity in making hats. Hat boxes filled with fascinators, caps and hair-pieces, wood blocks for fine felting, notions and fabrics neatly line the rooms. Joline’s latest obsessions are forefront in the workspace; a line of sculptural straw sun hats for summer and hats made to resemble hair. The latter will be featured in the Art Attire show.

“Women have such a strong relationship with hair. I wanted to explore that,” said Joline, 32, who was raised in Hope and studied millinery at George Brown College in Toronto. One of the hats, Katsura, resembles a traditional Japanese Geisha’s hairstyle. “I was making it when the earthquake hit and it took on a whole different meaning for me, thinking about the beauty, art and loss.”

Joline’s hats are one-of-a-kind creations, ranging from a mini-top hat that Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw might wear, to fuschia silk fascinators, feathered headbands, deconstructed felt cloches, a giant pom pom and more. Some are modest accessories and others are wild. Each shows her love of vintage and playfulness.

“Personally, I find wearing hats out fantastic. It’s nice to see something different out there,” Joline told me. “You have smile and have a sense of humour about it, too.”

Joline works part-time at a health-food store and sells her hats at markets (look for her at Moss Street) and on for $ 60 to $ 120. She also teaches felting workshops at Knotty by Nature on Government Street.

With the current fascinator rage, Joline should be the buzz of the fashion scene in Victoria, in Canada, even. Such is the plight of the gifted artist with little time for self-promotion.
