All Dressed Up Jacket Front

The Legend

ALL DRESSED UP

We’ve all been there — eight years old, dressed in our Party-best clothes, dragged along by our parents to some fancy adult affair and told to “Behave and don’t get dirty!” Quiet fidgets turn to outright foot tapping, nudging and pinching and . . . Let the games begin! It’s the same the world over, only the names have been changed. In India, it’s “Kith Kith” instead of hopscotch, and “Poshampa” for London Bridge. Indian Textile Designer Suneetha/Bhaavana brilliantly portrays two sisters in their traditional costume using elements of doll and costume making, embroidery and Shisha, or mirror work. Showcased in silken Chinese brocade, the effect is completed by jewelry designer Ronda Terry’s kiln fired dichroic glass button.

One Potato, Two Potato, Three Potato, Four . . .

Susan Hollingsworth

Susan Hollingsworth has always had a knack for storytelling. Her years spent living in countries from Europe to Asia introduced her to the ancient practice of fiber art and the techniques that women used to create visual stories – with thread and fabric – passed down to them from their ancestors. During a stint in London, she studied pattern making from the Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, which became the catalyst for SuKaz jackets. Rather than pen and paper, Susan designs wearable pieces of art, each one telling a unique story through the hands of skilled artisans from cultures around the globe.

The Art

All Dressed Up jacket panel collage

Suneetha/Bhavaana

The Sukaz Art Panels of India include a wealth of textile art techniques evoking a brilliance of color and the depths of mystery in the Indian culture. In collaboration with Sukaz, stories are spun to vivid life by the skillful artistry of Suneetha/Bhaavana’s applique, silk origami, and needlefelt and further enhanced with touches of beading, applique, and braiding.

Ronda Terry

Multi- talented jewelry artist Ronda Terry works magic in her Michigan studio, conjuring delicacy and beauty from bits of rough metal, raw gemstones, and broken glass. Each of her exquisite creations is forged using caustic chemicals, 1500 degree heat, and a master’s hand. Ronda fashions a range of jewelry, dichroic glass tile, and buttons using techniques of kiln firing, enameling, casting and etching. And each brings its own brand of magic to a Sukaz jacket.
