NADA is a non-profit organization focused on modern and contemporary art. Since 2002, the conglomerate of members, artists and exhibitors habitually come together to bring the public the latest from the art world. In a collaboration of a lifetime, NADA x PAOM has given life to Contemporary Drag, a funky clothing line taking inspiration from drag culture and fashion.
PAOM appreciates the extensive time required to create each perfectly custom-made piece–and for this line it does no different. Crazy, elaborate patterns envelop much of the apparel.
Contemporary Drag is a thematically intertwined system of clothing and accessories made by artists of unique yet similar backgrounds in art, fashion and drag queen culture. NADA wanted to make art more interactive. What better way to do so than by wearing it? NADA and PAOM have similar tendencies to give lesser known artists and designers the spotlight, knowing they can make something no one has ever seen before.
The iconic drag queen, comedienne, and DJ Lady Bunny contributed to the characteristically ostentatious Contemporary Drag collaboration with a sassy neoprene clutch bag. Scattered all around it are snapshots of her signature eye look taken from several paparazzi pics. Pictures of long thick lashes on the top and bottom lines fan out around blue and silver shimmery eyeshadow totally cover the purse in every nook possible. The piece-y purse grabs hold of some of her many expressive face contours at many angles.
