Elytra/FANTASTIC FIBERS 2016

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

'Elytra' was inspired by a beetle’s use of a hard shell to defend themselves from predators. These shells are often made of mesmerizing patterns and colors. The pattern on this coat was created by hand cutting a circle pattern into wool felt and appliqueing it onto a printed Italian cotton. The coat shell is made of 100% wool felt, while the accent material is a 100% Italian cotton. The pants are made of 100% silk accented by 100% genuine leather.
