Fabric Scraps Aren’t What They Used To Be…

… And neither are fashion accessories, as illustrated by designer Lilliana Hansen and her friend and model Cam Mills. You can’t help but smile back even as the significance of the hat’s hat generates unease.

From prehistory to fantasy to pop culture, the Metamorphose 2019 fashion and fashion-product show leapfrogged themes and showcased myriad scrap materials and products provided by collaborators – Marley’s Monsters, and Gervais Salon and Day Spa and its designers Annika Skaja, Marlo Jimenez, and Jennifer Wright. Salon Manager Bianca Grace Liles served as emcee along with St. Vinnie’s designer Mitra Gruwell, founder of Metamorphose and the ENVIA product line. See Images Below.

The fashion show attracted a new generation of designers in two age categories, Caterpillar for those 18 and under, and Chrysalis for new designers who bravely accepted odd assortments of materials and transformed them in amazing ways. See their work below.

Caterpillar winners were Lilliana Hansen for her fashion product, and Georgia Bryant for her showpiece. Top performers in the Chrysalis category were Hazel Snyder and Dharma Wease, respectively.
