Imaginary Friends

Meet Poco!

I have just spent two days with the fabulous artist and author Kathy Beynette in her studio at the Torpedo Factory Art Centre in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. For the 40th anniversary exhibition of the Torpedo Factory we aimed to illustrate 40 childhood imaginary friends on two small dresses. We got to hear the most fascinating stories and the finished dresses are being raffled off for $1 a ticket in her studio, Studio 5. If you want the chance to win one you have until November 18th.

I love that idea of repurposing a garment...perhaps an extension of our doll idea? Perhaps we make fabric first, then make a garment, back and forth before you come home? XXX
