Hats

The Hats are Done…..Fashion Artist in Residence 2011

A big thank you to the St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County for choosing me as their 2011 Fashion Artist in Residence! It was such a great experience with an outstanding organization. Here is the link for more information on their program, www.svdp-alameda.org/air.php

Each hat pictured above was created from a garment or garments that I found at the St. Vincent de Paul warehouse. This residency really pushed me out of my comfort zone as a designer and I am really pleased with each and every hat. I plan to continue making hats out of found and recyled clothing.  I enjoy the challenge of the limited fabric that each garment presents and the idea that almost any garment can be made into something new! Enjoy!
