The 2016 Experimental Fashion Event is designed, directed and produced by the artists and designers from MICA's Fiber Department's yearlong Multi-Media Event class. Together, they collaboratively transform Baltimore's Lithuanian Hall into a venue for innovative fashion, costume design, performance art and soft sculpture. This annual event features individually crafted bodies of garment-based work exploring the intersection of fashion and art.

"Hoi Polloi" comes from the greek word πολλοι meaning "the common people." The Experimental Fashion Event artists and designers have come together in a single collaboration from diverse points of view, seeking to challenge the normalcy of fashion. This extraordinarily creative collaboration features themes from darkness to ultimate joy surrounding the human experience.

This fashion event that many in Baltimore flock to each year, represents a variety of concepts and skill sets, with work speaking to the performative nature of fashion and the overlapping of the runway, the stage and the theater of the streets. The evening will involve more than 300 people, including designers and their models and performers.
