WELCOME TO EYE CANDY
This line of clothing uses old fabric scraps and ethnic collectible textiles as well as recycled/upcycled vintage pieces. Prices WAY below retail vintage shops. "eyecandy wearable art" sources for materials at Goodwill, Salvation Army, and Boomerangs (as well as other charities), and yard sales as well as curbside recycling. This unique blend of sourcing supports both artist and charitable organizations, as well as increasing "green" awareness of the environment. Trash transforms into treasure with a little work, imagination, and love <3

My work with wearable art also extends to fresh & funky fashions. Pictured is the "LIVING DOLL" fashion installation premiered at Roslindale Open Studios 2005. The camisole top utilized old clothing and 64 tiny plastic dolls with hair! Each was hand sewn into the front of the bodice one at a time. The ballerina-tulle skirt also features dolls peppering the hem. This piece fits size 6-8 but can be altered. Asking price is $300.00 (cash only!)
