Artful Fashion

Allegany Arts Council

Artful Fashion means artistically designed and (usually) handcrafted clothing, jewelry and accessories. It means unique artwork designed for the human body. We will feature work of the highest caliber in craftsmanship and technical ability as well as creative expression and visual appeal. Designers of clothing, jewelry and accessories for both men and women are encouraged to submit up to five images representative of their line or work. If accepted, the designer will be able to exhibit multiple pieces in the gallery, which allows for range of sizing and depth of your suite/look. Artists creating wearable fiber art may use purchased finished fabrics or other materials, making them into unique garments, or may dye and paint virgin fabric. Accessories are defined as special items that enhance a wardrobe such as scarves, shawls, purses, hats, belts, etc. Jewelry must be of original concept and executed by the artist.
