KOI suwannagate
Text and Images from http://www.koidesign.net

Quote:
Drawing inspiration from faded flowers, worn objects and native clothing, Koi sculpts beauty out of imperfection. Her process is highly intuitive and visceral. She admits, "I donít like to follow any rules; it is much more inspiring to make clothes my own way. Itís like reconstructing a jig-saw puzzle; I'm not certain what the outcome will be until the product is finished."

ďVintage Cashmere by KoiĒ is a range of one-of-a-kind hand-made garments. Each piece starts with vintage cashmere sweaters that are hand-picked, thoroughly cleaned then carefully cut and sculpted by hand into Koiís designs.

"Hand-Sculpted by Koi" is her collection of t-shirts, skirts and dresses that are made from the finest combed ring-spun cotton jersey available.

Koi has quickly become a favorite among fashion afficionados all over the world, Hollywood celebrities and the fashion press.

I appologize if there allready exists a KOI thread (3 letter titles are impossible to search for..)

I really like her stuff, but I think that it looks much better in real life than in the pictures.

it does look very sculptural but I like some of the whimsy as well. The owl shirt looks too cute.

Nice! Really love the detail...the owl,butterfly...but I wish the cobweb t'shirt had a bit more in terms of shape like the others.

Thanks Hanne
