WHO: Cam Matamoros (left), resident artist at Sketch art centre for street youth; Sue Cohen, artist at Sketch, currently working on a mosaic with street kids
WHERE: King and Portland
WHEN: November 20, 2 pm
CLOTHING: Matamoros: "Ironically, a friend of mine stole this toque for me from a dollar store in Montreal. The grey argyle scarf I'm wearing was stolen out of my ex-step-grandfather's closet. I bought this rainbow sweater from a thrift store for $3 when I was 13. The red jacket came from Campus Crew in Newmarket about five years ago. I paid about $100 for it. The pinstripe pants are part of a three-piece suit that was $100 from Cabaret Nostalgia (672 Queen West, 416-504-7126). My Camper shoes from B2 (399 Queen West, 416-595-9281) were on sale for $100."
Cohen: "I made the hat I'm wearing out of scrap bits of polar fleece that I found in the alleys of the fashion district. I encourage people to look for fabric there, because there's always so much. I made a bunch of these hats and gave them away. I got the jacket for about $100 and the fleece liner for $50 from Mountain Equipment Co-op (400 King West, 416-340-2667). My friend Jen Bulthuis, a print artist at Sketch, gave me the shirt, personalized with her own patch. I bought my cargoes at Goodwill (234 Adelaide East, 416-366-2083, and others) for $4, and my fluorescent orange and green socks at Legs Beautiful (2 Bloor West, 416-927-8333, and others) for $14. The eight-hole Docs cost $80 at a store whose name I can't remember near Yonge and Bloor."
HAIR: Matamoros: "Rosemary Bredar at Wayne Smith Salon (80 Scollard, 416-920-4247)." Cohen: "I do my own."
STYLE: Matamoros: "A public service announcement for doing your laundry!" Cohen: "Collected."
INTO: Matamoros: "Art and art in the community, photography, film, video." Cohen: "Making my own clothes and searching through the Goodwill. I paint with oil, mainly portraits, but I've recently started painting art on skate decks. The finished product comes out really nicely and you don't have to frame it!"
