Silk-strip Shawl
Fashion, Wearable Art
28" x 80"
An elegant and fashionable designer shawl that is fully reversible. Made from numerous cut strips of iridescent and non-iridescent silks and shears, hand-dyed gauzy scrim, and other handsome textiles that have been sewn onto a sturdy and warm flannel base-fabric. Many of the strips have been sewn perpendicular to the base and then frayed to create a very textural effect. The lining of the shawl is a lovely iridescent crinkled silk, from which some of the strips on the reverse were also cut.
