Cornell Fashion Collective Runway Show: Iron

7PM, Barton Hall
Emily Parkinson, BS '12 candidate in the Department of Fiber Science and Apparel Design, will present a line of apparel designs inspired by European wrought iron work - intricately patterned gates, structural iron forms, heavy metal keys and locks, and the interplay between iron pieces and their environments. The designer will create a collection of pieces ranging from garments and jewelry to bags and belts.

Wrought iron inspires ANVIL: intricately patterned gates, structural iron forms, heavy metal locks and keys, and the interplay between these pieces and their environments. Wrought iron is precisely detailed but also created by individual hands. In keeping with this duality of metalwork, the designer merges the very exact technology of laser cutting with hand-painted and embellished textiles. ANVIL blurs the lines between jewelry, garments, architecture, and fashion by creating artifacts that adorn the body.
