I'm over the moon with this news. The University of Wisconsin-Stout has acquired 15 of my most notable wearable art garments. They will be archived in in their Apparel Design and Development Department with their permanent historical collection of garments.
It's hard to believe that the contents of 2 large boxes span over 25 years of creating wearable art.
These pieces are the best examples of my passion...most were made for specific prestigious invitational or juried shows such as the Fairfield Fashion Show which put wearables on the map. Included too were pieces made for the AQS/Hobbs Fashion shows and numerous pieces from my book "The Wholecloth Garment Stori".
Instead of going into detail for each and their significance......I hope you'll just enjoy seeing a variety of the pieces. Some are pictured as worn by professional models for the Fairfield Fashion Shows.
