About a year ago we announced the beginning of our Project: Made in Huntsville collaboration with several artists, textile designers, jewelry designers, photographers, organizations, models as well as Huntsvillians and visitors of our wonderful city.
I am very pleased to introduce to you my collaborators- the artists who made the Project possible.
is our main photographer for the collection. We are very lucky he agreed to lent his talent and lenses. Here is Johnny’s picture from behind the scenes of one of the photo sessions:
Natalie from the Rusted Willow Artwork
Natalie and myself work closely on four garments. She has designed and made one of the kind line of necklaces and bracelets largely inspired by nature. Here is her picture from the backstage of one of our photo sessions.
Barbara from the Laughing Tree Art
Barbara is an artist behind our 2 hand-painted dresses. One is inspired by Alabama nature and another one – by one of Barbara’s artworks.
Q from The Foldout Cat is creating a wonderful Saori textile for a dress that will close the collection. If you want to know more about the Saori weaving contact Q. She offers classes on this unique technique.
We enjoyed having some of the pieces from The Crow’s Trunk accessorizing two of our garments.
We also enjoyed having Mary Zarzar – a LipSense Distributor who applied beautiful lipstick on our models during the Fashionable Portraits photo session. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It was great to have a support of Lowe Mill Arts and Entertainment for our interactive exhibit last summer. The visitors where leaving messages about themselves and Huntsville on the fabric that would be used to line some of our garments.
Downtown Huntsville Inc. let me set up an interactive booth during the Downtown Art Walk. Visitors were making patches and sketching garments inspired by Huntsville, AL.
We are grateful to Alabama Fashion Alliance for featuring us in their Summer 2017 Look book. I can’t wait to see how it turn out.
There is still a lot of room for the collaboration. If you are interested to be part of Project: Made in Huntsville let us know! We would love to have you share your talent with us and with our community.
