Magpie Jewelry made from scavenged bits of this and that
Art Dance Couture
It was such a busy summer I haven’t really had time to post, so I am just now transitioning into Fall and wrapping up some projects from the months before.
June was wedding month and I made the wedding dress for my beloved niece (and model!)
The wedding was in Cooperstown New York with a beautiful lake as backdrop on a gorgeous late Spring afternoon. Of course everyone danced and celebrated well into the night.
We worked on the dress for a whole year which was a fabulous luxury.
Trunk show in May
My trunk show, given by 2 of my dear clients and friends was a big success and a lot of fun.
New Dance Costumes!!
I was invited to design new costumes for an older Trisha Brown work called “Working Title”. With very little time I used as my starting point fabrics I had already in the studio. After receiving a green light from the 2 artistic directors of the company I felt free to compose the costumes by instinct using as reference everything I learned from working with Trisha and her style of movement and playful spirit.
An Antique Dress
I was asked to work on a dress and revive it as much as possible for inclusion in the beautiful upcoming catalog of Cora Ginsburg
The dress I was asked to restore was a “Fancy dress” most likely worn for a Ball at a private house in England in the 1820’s
My beloved Father passed away just 10 days after we celebrated his 97 birthday in August. He was able to attend the wedding of his granddaughter and reunite with his 93 year old brother who he hadn’t seen in 20 years. He was my biggest inspiration and fan. A man of boundless heart and imagination. His brother, my uncle passed away just 2 weeks later. we Miss them.
