Curster's Dollmighty Fashion Show
Minneapolis based artist, Erin Currie has
been bringing her imagination to life through paintings, prints, plush dolls
and fashion since she can remember. Her explorations in characters are known as "Curster's". Her plush doll designs are
meticulously handcrafted with layering of rich fabrics, hand embroidery, as
well as hand embellished faces resulting in one of a kind works of art.
December 12, 2009 at the Soo Visual Art Center, I
was lucky enough to be a part of her first fashion show—Curster’s Dollmighty
Fashion Show. The impeccable collection included breathtaking dresses, fanciful
hats all inspired by military helmets, lacy sweaters, hand crafted tees, as
well as hoodies and ornate mukluks. The line was a perfect mixture of style,
including coquette, victorian princess and Tank Girl.
It’s every girls dream to dress like a doll
for a day. I’m blessed to have had the opportunity. Thank you Erin.
