Yes, this is the exact woman who can fashion you a garment out of hair, and quite literally! She is one of many influences in design with exceptional handwork.
When I learned about her a few years ago, I was consumed by her three-dimensional design; struck not only by how it was a statement of art, however admiring the fact that her techniques and combinations of materials seemed to also be ahead and somewhat timely.
I love the way that she takes the silhouette, bends the rules of instruction by setting her own measurement and style, yet still produces wearable art. She's also the creative string who has designed exclusive knitwear pieces for Emilio Pucci and Louis Vuitton.
What's also interesting is that even behind the scenes; some of the garments are constructed right on the model's body, not because it's unfinished, however it's the only way her concept works for some of the complicated designs.
I wasn't going to show a video, but I had to share this past one with you, more for the white & black dresses, up-close shots, and other random footage that turned my eyes toward her designs.
If you have not yet seen some of her inspiring work here's a small glimpse.
