Xenobia Bailey: The Aesthetic of Funk

Fiber artist Xenobia Bailey makes crocheted hats that are anything but typical. Her hats are objects with odd shapes and forms, embellished with feathers and beads and luscious color combinations intricately woven into patterns that are outrageously beautiful one-of-kind hats. Her hats are eye grabbing. Each hat is a showstopper, and each wearer a performer turning passerbyers heads. On the streets people stop in awe of Xenobia’s hats curiously questioning. Where did you get that cool hat?

She’s embodies a modernist flair decked in stylish Mies Van der Rohe black round eyeglasses, her clothes crocheted in brilliant colors and patterns, and textures emotes what this prolific fiber artists calls, “funk.” As a fiber artist her hats are a blending of tactile textures, rich patterns and anthropomorphic shapes, seeing her hats I can’t help but think of the ebullient spices in New Orleans flavorful gumbo stew. She likens her aesthetic to the syncopated beats of funk music informed by African patterns found in textiles and architecture, and the rhythms of global music practices of call and response. She has BA in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute. Xenobia’s work links the symbiotic relationship between her design background and being a fiber-artist.

If you missed her exquisitely crocheted hats at the Global Africa Project held at Museum of Art and Design in 2010, then visit MAD.org for more information on her work. She’s represented by STUX gallery in NYC and listing on upcoming shows and more of her work can be found on Xenba.blogspot.com. Thinking of wearing an original Neo-Funky crocheted hat make sure to visit Xenobia Bailey’s Etsy shop.

Fashion and Street Culture @ Yale University

Today, street style blogs are some of the most popular sites on the Internet. But what is street style? And what is the relationship between style, streets, and pop culture? How have the Internet, digital cameras and other technologies impacted how we understand the way we dress?  Why do so many people care about the way other people dress?

The Urban Catwalk: Fashion and Street Culture, a two-day symposium at Yale University, aims to investigate the relationships between street style and identity.

Whether high end or mass market, fashion is a daily performance of identity. Street fashion tells a personal narrative about one’s dreams, fantasies, fears and struggles. From Marie Antoinette to Lady Gaga, and from Napoleon Bonaparte to Prince, fashion is used as an instrument of rebellion and commentary on social norms.

Come hear 20 minute presentations from a range of disciplines, including a special guest panel with celebrity stylist and founding fashion director of Vibe Michaela angela Davis, Guy Trebay of the New York TimesChioma Nnadi of Vogue, and Jimmy Webb of New York City’s Trash and Vaudeville. Our conference blends the intellectual with an ear to the ground. We close the conference out with a street style fashion show, where real-people models will showcase what street style means to them.
