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.
