This year, I am focused on creating clothing that combines various elements in order to create movement and structure in the knitwear. I make the clothing in my studio and experiment with combining the knit fabrics that we make on knitting machines with wire, leather and other materials. Much of this work is one of a kind with some limited production. I also make the one of a kind pin closures that go with the sweaters. Making the fabrics and designing the patterns allows me to experiment with texture, form and movement as I am creating the garment.
