Klymaxx I Miss You If there was ever a band you couldn't take your eyes off of, it was Klymaxx. And even today, I double dare you, hit play and just try to look away, you weasely weaking, just try......
The Jets "You Got It All Over Him" Quite possibly the best double entendre song title in human history. It really sticks with you, doesn't it?
Chers "Stars' album. If you are a fetishist,(and you are!) I know you will enjoy it.
Ercoli Patchwork Jacket someone has posted on Etsy. It was one of my favorite things my company made. The fabrics were from a now defunct fabric store in Phila called Staplers. The owner of the fabric store designed alot of his own fabrics and fabric surface prints and baby, they were off the charts. I bought maybe 1000 yards when then were going out of business and made these jackets and also a very cool cropped camp shirt. The camp shirts were big and fit men as well as women. I still wear the camp shirt, but don't own this jacket, I had one,but must have given it away years ago. so it's doubly fun to see it resurface in pristine condition on etasy.

In The Meantime, Darling - a rich Philadelphia girl marries a soldier.... (costumes by Bonnie Cashin)
Sail On Sailor - a very pretty song by The Beach Boys from their great " Holland" " album.
A weaving sample I did using trash bags, ribbon, crepe paper and siver cord.
Another front and back fashion sketch I did. These are done very quickly, the goal is to keep it loose and 'off the cuff ". This ones about proportion and an 'ugly' aesthetic. Not saying the look itself is ugly but a certain awkwardness keeps the idea alive and moves it forward.
Front and Back of one of my fashion sketches. the front of paper version is pencil driven and sketchy. The back softer and somehow more vintagey looking.
