Kara Mia Fenoglietto
Wallflower is a conceptual fashion installation that challenges traditional trappings of femininity. Designer Kara Mia Fenoglietto’s hand-sewn garments explore feelings of anxiety and entrapment using patterns and themes associated with homemaking accessories mass marketed to women. It’s a world where the prosaic becomes oppressive—in one piece, a vintage nightgown becomes a symbol of limitation. Though fashion isn’t often immediately thought of as a form of protest art, Fenoglietto hopes these pieces will provoke conversation about gender stereotypes and the liberation of breaking them.
Congratulations on your show, Kara, and on recognition in the articles. Nice work!
