Wearable Art Inspiration

Stefanie | Posted in General Discussion on

Does anyone have any good websites or mail lists for wearable art? I am interested in exploring this more but would love some eye candy in the meantime. I’m trying to have more fun with my sewing time.
Thanks,
Stefanie

    go to purrfection.com, go to the gallery, and look through - they also have links to the various artist's sites if they have them, and there's some *very* nice stuff shown. I want to take a class from Ms. Larkin!

    for wearable art inspiration I go to the following publications:  belle armoire http://www.bellearmoire.com     and fiber arts - http://www.fiberarts.com   both have some great stuff in them.   Also you may want to check out the book - The Fiberarts Book of Wearable Art by Katherine Duncan Aimone , it has some fantastic stuff in it and it's now available in paperback.

      The Fibertarts Book of Wearable Art is a great book!  A couple of the artists covered in it have published in Threads, e.g. Anna Carlsson.

      I also like to browse websites of wearable artists.   I am listing a few I like below.  I cannot seem to find the one for Nancy Shriber -- she was in a recent issue of Threads.  Her website showcases her work.

      Dawn McIntyre http://www.dawnmcintyre.com

      Kayla Kennington http://www.kaylakennington.com

        Her website is :  http://www.contemporarysashiko.com/

        she's done some fantastic stuff.  I also like kayla kennington's work.  I saw her on an episode of sew much more and I liked her techniques and her style.  I was just flipping through my fiberarts book today.  I love to pick it up every so often and flip through, I always find something new to look at that I missed before.
