The [L]able collection consists of ready-to-wear clothes that are transformed into one-of-a-kind couture pieces. These garments are adorned with layers of labels that cascade in undulating rhythms over the surface. The new texture is developed by reproducing typical information provided by the manufacturers via labels either sewn-in or printed directly on the clothes. What was first a simple garment culled from current department store trends and thrift store treasures is metamorphosised into a multidimensional sculpture.
[L]able: Catalog of Images, Version Two is a collection of images documenting the work. This version was updated on June 21, 2008 after launching the collection at the San Francisco Art Institute's Master of Fine Arts Graduate Exhibition.
