Wari: Meet Project Tunic Contestant Miranda Marti

Posted on January 4, 2013 by ClevelandArt

Miranda Marti’s interest in fashion was first inspired by her grandmother, who studied haute couture in Paris. She has recently discovered a love for historical fashion, with a particular interest in the construction techniques and small details that are not present in mass-produced contemporary clothing. Although Marti’s own favorite periods to explore are the Edwardian era (early 1900s) and the New Look (1950s), she has enjoyed discovering Wari while designing an outfit for the runway show.

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. “The work produced by the Wari culture speaks to my personal style through its use of pattern and color.” She is drawn towards abstraction and has recently begun to incorporate repeating geometric patterns into her work.

Wari: Meet Project Tunic Contestant Debbie Apple-Presser

Posted on December 14, 2012 by ClevelandArt

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.
