Custom Wedding Dress 

This dress was a 100% custom design and custom fit piece. It was a wonderful experience to create a truly unique wedding dress that was made in three parts, a lace covered bodice with a tulle skirt, a removable skirt with a long train for the ceremony and a tea length flared skirt for the reception. In the middle of the wedding, I removed the hem of the tulle over skirt to allow the bride the freedom to dance and spin with her new husband on the dance floor. The lace and the satin buttons for the bodice were taken from the bride's mother's wedding dress and hand stitched to the new dress. This dress brought together two generations of materials and styles together and was worn to bring two wonderful people together.

Felted Eyes for Hulu's Original Series, The Path

These eyes were 100% handmade through the process of wet felting and some very detailed cut work. Using space dyed wool roving, each eye had a unique color scheme and pattern and each eye was hand cut with the symbol of the cult from the show. They were worn by cast and extras on the season finale of season two of The Path. Catch the episode on Hulu,

 

Warm Dark Earth

My senior thesis at Pratt Institute was a collection made from entirely natural and biodegradable materials. Every color was achieved through natural dying and every texture and pattern was handmade specifically for this collection. The pieces were inspired by and based on a short story I wrote my senior year and you can read it here.
