• about the concept
The design will have a mediterranean feel based on the store's unique boots which are made from tapestries all over Asia and manufactured in Istanbul. Each boot is unique so the client wants to relate that value to the uniqueness of their customers. "Be Suzani" or "What's your Suzani Style?" is the inspiration behind the box design.
• About the sponsor
Bold, whimsical and stylish, the one-of-a-kind boots and shoes at Suzani Styles are truly pieces of wearable art. Colors and patterns blossom from hand-stitched Turkish suzani fabrics, incarnated into styles that include ankle kitten-heel boots, cowboy boots, above-the-knee wedge boots and many more. You can also claim your own fashion territory by commissioning a pair that's custom-designed. The boutique, conveniently located in the District in Bearden, also features statement jewelry, colorful handbags and owner April Montgomery's new line of dog accessories for fashion-forward pooches and their owners.
HOURS: Tues. - Sat. 12 p.m. - 6 p.m.
• About the artist
Over the last couple of years, my work has involved the creation of narrative scenes of object or figures, richly layered with patterns and embellished with bits of typography. Some are about dreams, some about places, all have a rich sensibility. I started working with acrylic and then began layering patterns and other found objects into my paintings, often repeating silhouettes or objects throughout a body of work so that these cross pollinate each other. I have an affinity for natural materials and richly colored patterns due to my background in woodcut printmaking and graphic design.
