A few years ago I attended my first Wearable Art show at Dunedin Fine Art Center and I remember being in awe at how creative and well produced it was. I love fashion and glamour and wondered if I would ever be a part of it in the future. A lot of work goes into such an endeavor, as well as a lot of time, energy, and skill in building multiple looks.
Well, I got to know the folks at DFAC over the years, and one of my friends over there asked me about being a designer. I took that as a sign it was a good time to pull the trigger, but would need some assistance. I asked my friend Michael if he would want to team up, and he did. We had similar interests in Native American art and color, so we looked at the Hopi Native Americans Kachina dolls for inspiration.
Below see some progress pics as I experimented ( and struggled a lot) with constructing head dresses tat would stay up and not fall off during our dance movements.
