Geisha Girl Jacket Fullbody

The Legend

GEISHA GIRL

In the Geisha Girl long jacket, a true melding of cultures brings an elegant geisha to life. An original pen-and-ink drawing by a Kazakh artist has been skillfully hand embroidered by Chinese artisans at XP Craft. The jacket is  further embellished with elaborate bead work. The scene is showcased against luxurious folds of Chinese silk brocade, and finished by the hand-forged and enameled button of American jewelry artist Ronda Terry.

You Go, Girl…

The Designer

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.
