I am getting ready for the Tennessee Presents Textiles show, and it feels sooo good! I have 12 coats and hope to make 3 more for the event. This is a new jacket and it's SOLD...It was not in my plans to sell it before the runway show but when someone wanted to buy it, how could I refuse? I do make them to sell them. This coat is really spetacular in real life and has such a personality of its own.
The main fabric is done with a collage technique and the design of the coat has a back panel that works really well for an artistic composition.
I embellish the fabric with some chenille yarn, a little thread painting and the funky leather buttons add alot of fun to the whole melange of colors. It also has a turnback cuff adding more color to the mix. As always, I hope that the owner feels really special when she wears one of my 'artwears'.
I will be having professional pictures taken of my jackets before the big show and will of course post them for your viewing pleasure. Not, that I don't think you don't love my blurry ones. Sorry about that, have to figure out my camera's settings. Well, back to work......
