Henry Navarro Delgado

Associate Professor

Henry Navarro Delgado is an interdisciplinary designer, artist, activist, and scholar investigating the convergences of fashion, visual culture and social justice through theory and practice-based research. His participatory creative practice engages Black, Indigenous, racialized, rural, and other underrepresented social groups with art, media making, design, and entrepreneurship on their own terms. Navarro Delgado’s scholarly publications examine the overlapping of fashion and popular culture, apparel sizing in relation to other social aspects such as gender and cultural identity, and oppositional cultural practices through design and media making. A faculty member of The Creative School at Toronto Metropolitan University, he serves in several professional and academic organizations. In 2022, he guest-edited ‘Black Masculinities, Dress & Style’, a special issue of the journal Critical Studies in Men’s Fashion.
