Blown Away spring 2021 is inspired by the 1980s and its devasting loss of queer creative talent due to the AIDS epidemic. The collection uses a suspended animation narrative to symbolize the involuntary exposure of sexuality that many gay professionals had become subject to.

Daniel is a post-gender designer and 2020 graduate of Ryerson’s fashion design BA program. Their work often presents itself through satirical narratives to address critical issues within the queer community. Their design work often stands out for its use of humour to address serious issues. Daniel is fascinated by the complex aspects of identity, queer history, and storytelling –their work often exits at the intersection of queer craft and traditional tailoring. Currently, Daniel is completing their postgraduate study at Central Saint Martins in London, England – where their work continues to evolve to question the role of identity within contemporary fashion design.
