#2 MacDONALD, PAISLEY RAIN
3RD PLACE : FASHION (TIE)
Bio: "Paisley Rain, or Lee, is a queer and trans outsider artist based in Halifax. Just like their day job in corporate communications, and side job restoring vintage clothing and homewares, she has no formal training or presence in the art world and has depended entirely on her sheer audacity and hubris to create this design."
Description: This dress is loosely based on the Ukranian garment called a vyshyvanka. It is purposefully rushed, unfinished, crooked, and messy.
A protective stone is hidden in the garment."
