I want to identify and understand that "when we speak about fashion, we don't speak just about clothes, by fashion we mean the surface of the multiple process in society either in human condition, mentality and also culture". -Ewelina Dziewiela
"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas; the way we live, what is happening". -Coco Chanel

Teepee Installation at Greenwood Collective

This is the teepee I designed + constructed for the art show, "Its Complicated" last Friday at the Greenwood Collective.
I used a nylon cordura for the panels and bamboo poles.
The idea was to use high tech/performance material to construct one of the first + oldest forms of shelter.

I could not have done it without the help of all my friends! You guys are the best!

Thanks also to Kate Barnett! Without your creativity as an artist and curator, the entire show would not have come together. Kate placed the Cowboy painting next to the teepee, making it a "Complicated" scene. It was perfect!
(Cowboy artist name coming soon)

It was such a fun process, I cant wait to start my teepee collection!

I'm so crazy about this installation. I keep visiting this post over and over wishing I had my very own teepee in my living room. Bravo on such a beautiful art piece!
