PatternNation is a collaborative and inclusive platform aimed at connecting artists who embrace bold colour and pattern globally. PatternNation was founded and is run by Vancouver Canada based artist and fashion designer Cydney Eva. She is of UK decent and lives on Unceded Coast Salish Territories through the migration of Colonization and history of settlers on Native Land. PatternNation collaborations engage with many indigenous cultures globally, as an act of decolonization through art Cydney hopes PatternNation shoots, events and clothing will create conversation around identity politics. Part of the platforms mandate is to create more space for women and people of colour in fashion. The aim of PatternNation is to work directly with artists from various backgrounds and create content that subverts the usual consumption of Caucasian minimalist work in the art and fashion worlds.
We are living in a pattern nation, repetition is in music, fashion, visual art, even the way we move through our cities and live our daily routines. Every pre-colonial civilization embraced pattern in their own unique way, which has been slowly drained out of people through fast fashion and homogenous global fashion trends. So lets embrace and play with bold colour and pattern through the way we dress and the spaces we live in. Every Artist that collaborates with or represents PatternNation embodies these values through wearing and creating art that is rich with bright colours and striking patterns. PatternNation is not only a jewelry and design brand but also a way of thinking about the world. We are constantly bombarded by minimalist aesthetic - PatternNation asks you to think differently and make it funky.
