Caped Escapades Cape Front

The Legend

CAPED ESCAPADES

Through the ages the cape has close association with imagery of mystery and power. It has concealed dark secrets – think Bela Lugosi as Dracula – and rendered the hero invisible in his quest to save the day. Folklore abounds with tales of “Cloaks Of Invisibility”; indeed, King Arthur’s mantle was noted as his most prized possession. And best of all, as a statement of elegant fashion the cape rules with drama and flair! Indian Textile Designer Suneetha/Bhaavana’s dramatic creation of ribbon work in deep shades of starlit sky is the perfect foil to cosmic swirls in the deepest hues of midnight. Jewelry artist Ronda Terry’s kiln fired dichroic
glass button adds the perfect starlight twinkle.

“Good evening and good night. . . ”
– Bela Lugosi, 1931 (aka Dracula, Prince Of Darkness)

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

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.
