Frankovich Debuts Winter Collection: Notes on Camping

On October 22, David Frankovich debuted his new Fall/Winter collection on the starkly beautiful coulee at the University of Lethbridge. Braving chilly weather and the threat of snow, Frankovich created new garments on the spot using common camping supplies such as tarpaulin, reflective emergency blankets, and mosquito netting.

The small but dedicated audience lauded Frankovich’s clever use of material and ambition in climbing up and down the steep hills while wearing tent stakes tied to his shoes as high heels. Artistic Director Tomas Jonsson looked at points very nervous, and was overheard on his phone double-checking M:ST’s insurance coverage.
