“Uncommon Couture” crosses the boundary between Art and Fashion just in time to celebrate St. Petersburg’s Art & Fashion Week.
Fashion Designer Lina Teixeira’s showcase garments tell the story of one of King Henri’s doomed wives and her bridesmaid, all created in recycled materials.
Her ready to wear collection fuses wearable garments with recycled materials, including plastic bags, pillow cases, deconstructed flower arrangements just to name a few. Her popular PashLina scarves will be a great addition to your fashion wardrobe and her ICONIC Collection features hand painted one-of-a-kind corsets.
Accessory Designers: Funky shoes, rubber & metal brooches, vinyl record purses and colorful recycled tin bracelets play with sophisticated lapidary creations.
Accessory artists featured in the exhibition include: Martha Bennington, Harriete Estel Berman, Shannon Cobb-Tappan, Christine Dhein, Daniel Kamman, Leeanne Kroetsch, Elizabeth Harking, Christina Lemon and Ivanka Ska.
Artists: Ivanka Ska Harriete Estel Berman
