My collection ‘The Memory Vessel’ was inspired by memory jugs which are vessels
into which small objects, representing cherished memories, are placed.
The styling of each memory jug is unique, covered with texture, and multiple materials,
making it a perfect container for objects that will keep memories from fading away.
Multi-color patterned latch-hook vest with back ties, worn over a color-blocked
sleeveless handknit sweater, and fully fashioned skirt.
The “Look” is accessorized with a knit balaclava, mittens, and slippers.
The color-blocked sleeveless drop-shoulder handknit sweater, and the vessel-shaped skirt,
programmed by the designer, represent a memory vessel.
The vest was created using a latch-hook technique.
The latch-hook vest is fastened at the back with hand-woven straps.
The handknit balaclava and embossed woven mittens emphasize the overall shape of the silhouette.
The different textures of yarns are woven together in various directions, signifying mixed memories.
The pieces knit with purl stitch, create a natural transition between the latch-hook panel and the woven straps.
Detail: Handwoven vest back ties with embossed woven mittens.
All the stitches, and various textures, flow like one from head-to-toe.
A handmade flower of multiple textures, sits in a memory jug.
The atmosphere created by all the knit textures is one that is soft & delicate.
