Viktor and Rolf Fall 2010
Glamour Factory

After she teetered out wearing three times her body weight in layers, McMenamy was joined by Victor and Rolf, who proceeded to remove one piece of her clothing at a time and dress the younger models in those items for their marches down the runway. First off was a giant tweed cape that turned into a coat with a few tweaks here and there, followed by, among other things, a leather coat that reversed to a beaded one and a crystal-studded number that unzipped down McMenamy's back and zipped up the second girl's front. Once McMenamy had been stripped down to a nude bodysuit, the process resumed in reverse. The give and take culminated with a slinky silk strapless dress that with a few pulls of its drawstrings became a cape, and a ball skirt that turned into an Elizabethan ruff of absolutely epic proportions." - Style.com

"This time around, we want to show that something can be both wearable and extreme at the same time. It goes beyond a mere idea; it is literally ready for production." - Victor & Rolf

I just got hired to make a t-shirt quilt for a big-time LA movie director and this was one of the shirts in the pile. Nostalgia! It's from an old record store in my hometown of Durham, NC (that's been closed for years now) -- turns out he's from Raleigh. It made me smile.

Almost finished with the quilt top I'm making for my brother and sister-in-law to give to a newly pregnant friend. I was attempting to get it finished before my friends came in town but didn't quite make it. It'll be done soon!

The colors and the elephants touch on the parents' college degree from University of Alabama.

The one orange triangle is Laurence and Jess' UT Knoxville nod.
