A Glimpse of Gossamer and Tatters Intrigued by the line where fashion meets art. Conscious thoughts and intent meet elusive dreamscapes. Tattered Gossamer was created to pay homage to a fascination with the dichotomy between the tattered, worn and earthy aspects of nature, and gossamer, haunting, dreamlike forms. The Tattered element speaks of the effect of time on form and the actual deterioration or decay of material. This process creates an imprint and a remnant of history, leaving a story behind. Gossamer is unearthly, untouched, intangible, delicate and ethereal. It embodies the intangibility of a fleeting impression or a moment in time. I am inspired by the space between where these elements meet creating an ephemeral shadowed realm. Each one-of-a kind piece is created by hand in our East Village studio. They are all hand blocked, draped and hand sewn. With a subtle nod to ancient ways and bygone eras; they blend traditional materials like felt, buckram, vintage lace, wool and silks with more organic material like rocks, banana fiber, bird wings, metals, fossils and other found objects and curiosities that reach back from the past and begin to tell their own narrative. Irreverently eloquent couture and demi-couture hats and headpieces.
