Among 90 exhibitors at the second annual American Fine Craft Show at Brooklyn Museum November 22-23, 2014 will be 13 in the “fashion” category, many using the vocabulary of an artist to describe handmade coats, jackets, dresses and accessories such as hats and scarves.

Fashion designer Marlene Housner, on her website, housner.net, wrote: “I take a painter’s revisionist approach to clothing construction, adding and subtracting elements until arriving at the rightful and sublime.” Andrea Gear, andreageer.com, wrote, “As an artist and designer I am fascinated by color, form and movement. I derive great enjoyment from seeing my creations as functional pieces of art. The knit fabrics move, flow and change depending on who is wearing them and how.”

“As an artist,” wrote Jane Herzenberg, janeherzenberg.com, I work “with natural fabrics, exploring the relationship between painting, Shibori dyeing, Rozome and hand embellishment to create art to wear.” She combines images from her experience with research “into the technical properties of dyes and fabrics to allow [me] to integrate [my] ideas of surface design into a tangible art form.” Hand weaver Patricia Palson, patriciapalson.com, wrote that she makes “wearable art” and finds “inspiration everywhere around her.”

Mieko Mintz, miekomintz.com/, born in southern Japan, “uses handmade textiles from around the world to create contemporary pieces such as her signature line of jackets made from vintage sari kantha, each with its own colors and story…..According to tradition, kantha help keep wearers safe from harm and aid in obtaining happiness and prosperity.” Wrote Bounkhong Signavong, laodesignonline.com: “My work depicts a diverse assortment of pieces to echo the rich history and cultural heritage of Laos, and represents the artistic inspirations and manual skills of an era long gone by.”

Also celebrating fashion is the museum’s special exhibition: “Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe.”
