Cynthia Krewson - Calendar Girl
Artist Statement: Calendar Girl is a celebration of two freedoms that feminism has imparted to the contemporary woman: the reproductive freedom made possible by the Pill and the freedom of expression modern Western fashion brings to women’s lives. The circular “talisman” of days and pills, a calendar that is so much a part of women’s daily routines, was the inspiration for the bold pattern on the skirt. Recalling a not-too-progressive era, the silhouette and materials serve to infuse the feminist iconography with a girly glamour that I hope will cause the viewer, as well the wearer, to appreciate the interconnectedness of these two freedoms—and not take them for granted!
