Tonia has spent the last five years in fashion academia enhancing her fashion eye which is evident in her latest collection of collages in many aspects. Although her usual collection of jaunty, colourful and charming characters persists, her work has evolved, capturing a stronger sense of movement and a more eloquent silhouette. She has also expanded on her choice of materials; using bolder and more challenging papers sourced from Japan and Italy to showcase her mastery at placing patterns together in a fresh and invigorating way. Her collection for 2013 is largely inspired by the Sapeurs of the Congo and illustrators such as Rene Gruau and Antonio Lopez among many others. She currently lectures in Textile design and Surface Treatments at the University of Trinidad and Tobago’s Caribbean Academy of Fashion and Design. The private viewing for this exhibition will take place on Tuesday, October 1st from 7:00pm until 8:30pm at Horizons Art Gallery located at 37, Mucurapo Road, St. James.
