Check out some of the awesome fashions using non traditional materials at the Visions Gallery in Liberty Station. If you click on their web site http://www.quiltvisions.org/ you will see a preview slide show of some of the creative designs. It is a lot of fun to see. I can only imagine what it is like to wear.
Rene, AKA L751 is right around the corner (in the same building) at Sophie's Gallery. Stop by and see her and her friends at the Mannequin Project. http://stmsc.org/programs/sophies-gallery-and-gift-shop
