In 2019 I began transforming vintage wedding gowns into textile books. Marrying the book form to textiles as page material, elegantly argues that fabric doesn't just have to be wearable, but that it too has stories to tell, and has a past worth sharing.
I found this 1960s wedding gown by Murray Hamburger Company at my local thrift store. Its beautiful lace and delicate buttons caught my attention. (This is a photo after I began taking it apart and silkscreening poetry on it.)
