The article discusses the work of textile artist and clothing designer Michelle Marcuse. Marcuse began her art career as a silk painter, selling her painted silk scarves at crafts shows. In 1995, she tired of the crafts show scene and decided to slow down. She began studying sewing techniques, and using white organza, she stitched, crinkled, pierced, and played with buttonholes along the bias. The result is her current style of clothing design, incorporating a use of fabric and stitchery as an art form.
