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.
