The Huffington Post Features SAIC Alum and Fashion Designer Geoffrey Mac

In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Geoffrey Mac (BFA 1999) remarks on his career in fashion design since graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His recent fashion line, “GMAC by Geoffrey Mac,” features more unisex styles that signal the diverse nature of his targeted audiences. Mac speaks about the transformative nature of his custom designs and how queer identity intersects with his work, stating, “being queer has encouraged me to be fearless—it’s given me a sense of invincibility and the creative freedom to transform the ordinary into extraordinary. It’s given me an experimental spirit: to use make-up, wigs, unconventional materials to transform and create without having to justify my methods or materials.
