Chrissy Wai-Ching of Seattle is a true inspiration. I am so taken with her work I can barely stop feeding myself through the web images. Her style embodies elegant, yet inspired, couture design. While this may seem far from paper or invitations, what I admire is her approach and the freedom she takes with her medium, molding and pushing it to a new boundary. Wai-Ching goes beyond the usual to form fabric into art for the wearer, like paint and canvas to a painter. Ecclectic, off beat, with a flair for rich textures, her meandering stitches, layers, and torn edges create a spectacular surface. Her designs can be full with colorful shape and volume or ethereal and light with subtle dip-dyed color and draping silk. If I could choose to find my own wedding dress again, this would be it.
