Art in Fashion 613 is an inspired fashion and night market created in 2015 by Kym Brown, the designer and owner behind Bombshell Revival Designs, and her partner Rene Trim, owner of local art and craft portal CreativeOttawa.com
Brown is an up-cycled artist, meaning that she creates new and unique pieces of wearable art by reusing and repurposing existing garments. Art in Fashion 613 was inspired after Brown asked herself two questions: ‘can art be fashion?’ and ‘can fashion be art?’ These questions began to develop and the idea grew. Brown and Trim were ready to try something fresh in the art and fashion scene.
“We realized that we both shared a passion to bring a new level to night events in Ottawa,” says Brown. “Especially those that promoted art, and, in my case, fashion as an art form.”
The result? Art in Fashion 613 was born.
Art in Fashion differs from other night markets because Brown and Trim have specifically chosen the vendors to fit the theme of art being fashion and fashion being art.
