it begins with these guys...
claudy jongstra is a designer that i have admired for a while for her ability to take such a basic material and transform it into a variety of applications from interior coverings and textures to high fashion fabrics. her process is remarkable and the product is truly amazing. i particularly like the ethereal presence of her pieces that involve felting onto raw silk and silk chiffon. she has mastered such detailed and intricate techniques with such a wild and unruly material.
