Edward Gorey Sustainable Fashion Show (2008)
An idea was hatched for a fashion show based on the fabulous drawings of Edward Gorey, so strange, surreal, and liney. The idealist I was and in some ways still am, I wanted to use all reused fabric and clothing for this show. Working with 30 volunteers, I became the maniacal head seamstress and director for the Edward Gorey Sustainable Fashion Show, held at UC Santa Cruz in May 2008. The show represented the accumulated work of students from a variety of disciplines interested in art, sustainability, and performance.
