Iconic in Ikat Blazer Fullbody

The Legend

 Iconic In Ikat


Set the bar for style and set fashion on its head! Do double duty in intricately woven Ikat cloth from looms in the Central Asian Republic of Uzbekistan. Ikat weaving is an art form handed down through generations, an extraordinarily complex process from start to finish, from the raising of silk worm fed on mulberry leaves, to the spinning and tying-and-dying of silken thread, to the final weaving stage, performed by men. The beauty of the artful Ikat is taken to new heights by Indian Textile Designer Suneetha/Bhaavana’s exquisite creation in silk, a work of brilliant color and motion achieved using multiple techniques of silk origami and passementerie. A kiln-fired dichroic glass button handcrafted by jewelry artist Ronda Terry completes the effect with a jeweled sparkle.

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.
