Alena Kalana‘s unconventional textile choices and experimentation are the basis of her designs.  Tibetan Transplant is a collection of multi-dimensional sculptural ensembles created from Kalana’s use of textile upholstery, layering, and her ‘hand’ of draping.

Susan Tancer creates a Graffiti clutch bag collection from a paint stained drop cloth. This brain cancer survivor, whose work has been exhibited at the Boca Museum of Art, Boca Raton, Florida, takes the color out of her paint brush with an abstract body of work serving both function and aesthetic appeal.

Hera Zhou, The Wave

Hera Zhou‘s The Wave collection was exhibited at Musée des Arts Décoratifs at the Louvre. Inspired by Katsushika Hokusai’s painting, The Great Wave off Kanagawa (the Great Wave), Zhou creates a sculptural reality of this internationally famous and most recognizable work of Japanese art, with her pleating technique of depth, layering, and rigid density.
