Outtake from 92nd Street Y’s Fridays at noon show today. The show was curated by Emery LeCrone and included a new work by John Mark Owen (pictured here with his dancers in costumes I designed and made). These dresses were different then anything I have ever made because they necessitated a lot of hand sewing. As I rework them for a January show I will post more details of the process.
