Joynoelle’s 2017 collection, Fungi: Beauty from Decay, explores the world of mycology and nature’s transformative ability to create new life from decomposition, bridging fashion and art based on the colors and textures of molds, spores, lichen and mushrooms. Joy Teiken’s concept emerged from her many hikes in the Otter Tail County woods near her cabin. The colors and textures on those journeys led to an obsession with the mycelium world. Thus taken, she dug deeper into the subject, creating passion, respect—and a new collection.
Again, this year Ms. Teiken is donating 100% of proceeds to Kill Kancer in honor of her mother who lost her battle with breast cancer. Kill Kancer uses art to communicate the most critical public health concern of our time: cancer. Kill Kancer creates healthy lifestyle campaigns along with supportive social initiatives that create awareness of cancer prevention and early detection strategies; reducing your risk of death from cancer by 90%.
Beauty from Decay is part of Fashion Week MN presented by W Minneapolis #FWMN.
