On the horizon…

tutu and tube top - found materials, trashionI’ve just posted this photo and a few other photos to my Flickr stream, so I thought I’d share it here as well. (I’m wishing for warmer weather right now, so seeing the sun and greenery in this photo makes me happy!)

The tutu is made from white Walmart shopping bags, fused together and then fashioned into a skirt that ties in the back, so it’s very adjustable.

The top is from a green mesh “corn sack” that I received from a local farm (ie, the bag that was used to transport corn). I usually pair the green tube top with the larger hoop-skirt that I made from tan Kroger bags. The necklace is made from clear plastic drink bottles. The boots…well, I haven’t started making shoes yet—but we’ll see about that!

Also, I’ve got a few exhibits to announce for the coming months:
“Wearable Art” at The Living Arts and Science Center’s Gloria Singletary Gallery, Feb 15th – April 2nd … and my Solo Show at the Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Gallery, Georgetown College, February 25th – April 8th.

I’m also planning to apply for several other art events going on in the Lexington area, so keep yer fingers crossed for me!

  1. I love this outfit. I would love to see more of your work. I am looking for some memorable pieces to perform in and to do some of my promotional projects in. I am excited to be a part of the LFC.

    Thanks so much for joining us last night, Yolantha :)
    And thank you for the kind words! I’d love to eventually have a portfolio of printed images of my work, but until then, feel free to browse digitally on here, and on my Facebook profile.
    Cheers!

    Thanks for the heads-up; I’ve added both to my calendar! (You see how behind I am since I’m just now sending the note…)

    Per Yolantha’s message, what’s the “LFC”?

    It stands for “Lexington Fashion Collaborative” – a group of people interested in promoting and participating in fashion events locally! We have a Facebook page (try the following link)…
    http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=58650545684

    …and are working on a new website to display the talent of all our members as well. We have general membership meetings about once a month – I’ll try to get the calendar on here working, or atleast be better about posting the dates/locations for our meetings in the future!
