Dress Up Exhibit Press Release (to be announced)

Dress Up is an initiative aimed at exploring the art of self-expression through fashion. What began as an event series has organically blossomed into a collective with multiple and varied projects.

Frustrated by the limitations of the fashion world, Tosca Webb founded Dress Up in 2017 with the intent of encouraging connectedness between the photographer and subject during photoshoots. Providing vintage clothing and allowing subjects to dress themselves, she introduced an experience where people could explore clothing without judgement. After her first shoot - held in a friend’s apartment bedroom - it became evident that dressing up was a unique experience with limitless possibilities.

In the past year, Dress Up has held multiple sold-out events, curated a line of vintage fashion and merchandise, and created extensive visual content. Dress Up is about shedding societal expectations and actively deciding to refute fashion norms in order to express yourself honestly through clothing. We are all superstars!

Dress Up is run by founder Tosca Webb and partner Annie Brebner.
