The first is always the hardest...
I like to make wearable things for awesome people. Well, most of the time they are wearable. Many times they are of a see through & sheer variety. Perhaps not for the faint of heart.
I take...unusual photos of unusual garments. I enjoy it 80% of the time except when things go horribly, horribly wrong and 5 hours of prep/shooting are almost completely wasted.
I like plastic,
I like latex,
I like ethereal fabrics,
I like excessive/obsessive detailing,
I like absurd silhouettes.
I attack ceilings!
A piece I made was published for the first time in Bizarre magazine in the UK in their October issue. I was so excited I showed everyone in my class like it was my unhatched child. If they weren't interested they did a lovely job hiding it.
I make lots of stuff for Mosh, who is incredible at posing and will take over the world doing so. She and I live a mile apart back in MD, true story, and collaborating with her makes me happy. I love working with people who know how to move and are willing to wear just about anything.
She's moving to LA in January and I'm hella jealous. Maybe one day I'll join her.
On the schedule for her:
~Red & black latex teardrop hat.
~Latex bunny. (It will include a hood- I FINALLY found a pattern!!!! Usually I make my own but fuck the human head is complicated!) Shooting with Emma Wilcox, who is innnncredddiiibllle.
~Electric pink & seafoam green girdle with sock garters, matching socks, and a collar piece. Latex, of course.
~Cream silk dress with lots of draping & matching 40's style hat. Did I mention M. has a thing for 40's & 60's style? Emphasis on the sexy 60's pillbox. Her bf is similar...I would love to design something for him. I want to do more menswear. Men need to be more decorated.
What else is on the menu?
~Thesis work for school....boxes covered with sheer, echoing the body, layers of white covered with tiny buds, headdresses made of what remains, animal skins & bones, stealing Chihuly's visions.
