The Legend

TAKE ME TO THE AIR

The Great Exhibition of 1851 in London, England was a showcase of international achievements of culture and industry. A scene of wonder and awe with its Crystal Palace and new-fangled displays, the fair appealed to all classes and gender, from royalty to common folk. Textile Designer Suneetha/Bhaavana captures the spirit of the day with her creation of fabric sculpture, appliqué, embroidery, and bead work. Swaths of midnight lace add elegance to gold-washed textile folds, and a shimmering dichroic glass button by jewelry artist Ronda Terry twinkles with a jeweled sparkle.

All dressed up and ready to go!

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.
