Mimi Hay, Fiber Artist
Mimi is a fiber artist who creates a line of women’s clothing inspired by her youth spent in Japan. The jackets, skirts, dresses and kimonos are often re-dyed or embellished with paint. The careful assortment of fabrics are then collaged by overlapping and appliqué methods using machine sewing, embroidery and hand beading where appropriate. They are also quilted to give emphasis to the stitched lines and to reinforce the three dimensional quality.
