Art to Wear
Fueled by the success of her airbrushed miniskirts, Kaye is collaborating once more with local artist Vernon Perez to produce one-of-a-kind dresses. Boasting of unique prints, each dress is a piece of wearable art, with templates drawn, cut, and airbrushed by hand. The fact that everything is done by hand means that no two pieces will ever be exactly the same.
Denim is used as the canvas as the fabric holds well against airbrushing and its weave doubles as a textural element in the designs, adding to the quirky feel of each dress. Silhouettes are kept simple to allow the airbrushed prints to stand out.
While the dresses in the collection are made of denim, other fabrics can be used to create pieces that can truly express one’s individuality.
