I am so happy hand customized garments are coming into fashion right now! A beautiful rainbow of hand embroidery and painting, fabric and beads, bleaching and dyeing, are bringing classic denim a new voice. I love the way denim clothing can serve as a canvas to create one of a kind artwork that gets to go out into the world and be worn. The individuality and flavor of the (often upcycled) designs I have been seeing on others lately interests and inspires me to create my own.
This vest is one in a series of original and wearable art pieces I will be creating from second hand denim articles.
This black denim vest was first treated with bleach, creating lighter areas for interest. Then, I painted designs front and back using acrylic paint and fabric medium, which I then heat fixed for permanence. Finally, I hand embroidered celestial and rainbow designs with various stitching techniques adding color and texture. This design represents many hours of careful painting and stitching which I hope will bring color and joy to the wearer.
This black vest is a Women’s XXL (Universal Threads, originally from Target)
The garment should be washed and dried gently to preserve the handiwork over time.
If you have any questions at all about this piece, please don’t hesitate to message me.
Thank you so much for viewing!
