Fusing her love of painting with her textile-construction skills, Julianne Fuchs-Musgrave produces bags, hats, coats and other garments that materialize as unique pieces of wearable art. With a strong commitment to the environment, this collection is comprised of eco-friendly materials. Reclaimed leather and suede, natural cotton and vintage textiles are the base for each piece. Abstract paintings are created on the base material using acrylic paint & ink, and are finished with a permanent glaze before being constructed into bags, belts or apparel. The collection will be sold exclusively on her website, http://www.jollyjuli.com, and select boutiques.
This collection demonstrates both a creative approach to fashion design, and an environmentally positive ethic. Every piece incorporates painting in some way, from abstract works on leather, full paintings on canvas, or collage-piecing impressionist works in shades of reclaimed leather or vintage wool.
Each work is meticulously finished. Bags are fully lined with hand-dyed cottons or other natural textiles. Apparel is lined or French-seam finished. Hardware and decorations are selected for both design and function. Commission orders are welcome. Any piece can be customized in size, material, and color scheme.
