Fabric-Free Fashion Photo Shoot

I recently attended - and since I was there, I styled - a fashion shoot in preparation for the Fabric-Free Fashion exhibition. Three garments were being photographed for the post card - later all the pieces in the show were documented in the studio. The first we shot was Osbaldo Ahumada's plastic forks fashion. Here are some behind-the-scenes images I took at the shoot. From makeup (by Jeanette Crutchfield) through the fun disco lighting courtesy of photographer Dave King of dk3 Studios.

The second was gorgeously crocheted of video tape by Shaun Muscolo. We played Frank Sinatra's songs to get in the mood.

And the third was my own Map Dress. Nice to see it on a person, especially a model like Ivy. When we pulled out the vintage suitcase the look was complete!

(But first I had a few final stitches to complete, right on the dressing room door!)

And this is the result, the show post card:

Fabric-Free Fashion, curated by Susan Lazear, is on view through July 24, 2011 at Visions Art Museum in San Diego. Visit http://www.quiltvisions.org/ for more information.
