Selma Karaca

Beacon, NY

Spirals is one of my signature styles in which one long stretch cotton fabric spirals around the body, as I stitch them together, which makes the shape of the body as an infinite movement. In my whirling style, I use bias ribbon fabrics while swirling (sewing) around the foundation fabric to create layers of dimension around the body. To be able to create the texture and layers I use wide variety fabrics, including canvas, silk, cotton, synthetic contemporary horse hair ribbon and more.
