GNAT Glitter Kink: Ongoing Practice
-Daily Updates & New Works Here-
Since 2011, GNAT Glitter Kink has transcended its "fashion brand" label to become something truly transcendent and powerful. GNAT develops customized Fetish & Bondage Gear and Garments for clients across the world. Through this practice, a mastery of materials and expansive design transform the self into embodied art.
Valentine at Every Size
Gnat Madrid: Architect for all bodies. Created out of a desire to see all body times represented in sensual garment, Gnat fabricates duplicate garments for models in sizes XS-5X+. This study in size and proportion show Gnat's mastery of shape, and highlight the importance for sensual silhouettes across all sizes, without censorship.
Party Girl Pool Party
Like an inflatable plastic pool raft reflecting in the sun, GNAT Glitter Kink has stuffed the Party Gurl Gear collection with glitter and sequins to sparkle under clear vinyl. Under the sunflowers, femme forms grapple with power and friendship in this documented experience of plastic and sunshine.
Hard Pangs at Gallery 400
GNAT was invited to participate in the Chances Dances 10th Anniversary Exhibition: Platforms. As part of WERQ: Embodying Queer Spirit, Gnat presented the models herself. As a femme dome in black, she led her pastel submissives around the stage, and cuffed & clipped them into place using bondage furniture, thus creating a living tableau of queer fashion bondage LQQKS.

SAIC Senior Thesis Collection, 2013. Central to the collection is the idea of VISIBILITY and INVISIBILITY. The camouflage prints in the collection are disabled by the neon and fluorescent colors that transform them into fabrics that will not allow a person to disappear. Further explorations in textile art and garment exemplify artistic mastery and play. Winner of THE WALK Fellowship, placing Gnat at the top of her graduating class in 2013.
