The La Fashion / Androgynous Apparel for His and Her Everyday Look

She’s looking for an initial $25,000 to fund pop-up exhibitions of her work in 2013 — the exhibitions, if funded, will take place in vacant spaces in 11 cities, including D.C., Baltimore, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Detroit.
