Jackie Von Tobel called for slipcover artisans from across the USA to design slipcovers for her booth at IWCE Vision ’11 in Las Vegas. So I whipped up these yummy cushions and pillows, which were fabricated from the newly launched Jackie Von Tobel Collection of print on demand fine cotton and linen fabrics. These fabrics are so soft and wash and wear beautifully. Check out Jackie’s offerings at www.jackievontobel.com .
In celebration of Art to Wear’s 10th Anniversary, the first ever Design Showcase was added to make the event especially memorable. Art to Wear is a collaborative show between NC States’s College of Design and College of Textiles Students. The Design Showcase was an opportunity for students and alumni to showcase their products, services and causes. I thought it would be fun to “dress” a chair for this fashion event. Fabric for the slipcover is Kiwi Suzani from the Jackie Von Tobel Collection of print on demand fine cotton and linen fabrics. I shopped etsy and found a beautiful pair of Fownes gloves made in USA in the 1960’s from LenaLucia’s shop. Also from etsy I found a hat from the 1980’s from FruFru4YouYou’s shop. A portion of the sale of the hat goes to the Raymond Hudd Millinery Award for students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. A pair of my favorite shoes finished off the look.
