Voix de Ville Artist Spotlight
Lisa Renee McKenzie

NAC Member and textile artist Lisa Renee McKenzie is working with NACs creative team on the Voix de Ville extraordinary set, designed by visual artist Shary Boyle. Lisa answered a few questions about her favourite WTF moments and how she expects to get her mind blown this year!

  1. How many years have you been a part of NAC’s wearable art fiascos? And how have you contributed to the show in the past? 

I’ve been a part of NAC’s wearable art fiascos since…hmmmm, which was the one at the old bingo hall? I think it was six years ago? I did makeup for that one. And subsequent years following! And then, I think it was two years ago, I made the shows closer, the bride.

  1. Tell us a little bit about what you’re cooking up for this year’s extravagonzo.

I’m helping out with the stage treatment, so much colour and texture, I love the whole feel and vibe this year!

  1. As we evolve into Voix de Ville, what are you most looking forward to?

Very excited to see how the show plays out, see the differences from the runway show, I have a feeling this one is gonna BLOW OUR MINDS!!!

Also, BRUCE!!!!!!!

  1. Tell us your favourite WTF moment from STRUTT’s gone by.
