In the beginning...

Hoard Couture started as an exhibition idea. I wanted to empty some bins by creating small dresses made from the various items letting the items themselves dictate the design. First of 39 pieces was "Do I Know You?" made from decades of business cards I collected. Notice how the art piece and a real garment are the same. Balance is important as is the color pattern, created by the cards themselves. How to preserve them so the text could still be read was the dilemma posed by the materials.
