Marta Collazo's androgynous cropped hair frames her, she says, "like a blank canvas" ready to showcase unique wares: Komono sunglasses, a bird cameo secured to an amber necklace with a twist tie from a loaf of bread, a geometric bracelet that was a gift from a stranger at a Starbucks. 

"It's a very transparent hairdo because you cannot hide your face or facial expressions," the 61-year-old retiree said last month during a fashion show at the Stony Island Arts Bank that was part of the exhibit "Runway to Reality," a collaboration between photographer Maurene Cooper and gown designer Suzette Opara that featured south-side teens in prom dresses. "It allows people to see you."
