Designer Shayna Fuller is at the beginning of what looks to be an exciting career. In September 2012, she graduated from Virginia Marti College of Art and Design with a degree in fashion design. Her formal education has prepared her well for future creative endeavors.
Miranda Marti’s interest in fashion was first inspired by her grandmother, who studied haute couture in Paris.
Graphic designer Tina Greenslade found her own design interests reflected in the tunics in Wari: Lords of the Ancient Andes. “As an artist I enjoy examining ancient cultures and their works of art,” Greenslade says.
After a seven-year hiatus, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s late medieval, Renaissance and Islamic collections have returned to public view.
Artist and designer Debbie Apple-Presser sees beauty and potential in objects that most people might consider discarding. For Project Tunic, she is creating a Wari-inspired garment of woven brown paper bags that will be dyed for a richer color and then stamped with a decorative pattern on the front and back. Her work is inspired by the weaving techniques, bright patterns and the distinctive face neck vessels found in the Wari exhibition. Project Tunic will be on January 4, 2013 as part of MIX: Runway at the museum.
