My name is Brenda Abdullah and I create one-of-a-kind wearable art by re-imagining gently used clothing and re-purposing them into new creations. Driven by my passion for textiles, I choose garments based on their color, texture, and quality. After cleaning and processing my finds, an organic design process occurs while exploring color and textural relationships. Gradually a new garment emerges as I cut and fit pieces together. It’s almost like playing with paints or crayons while anxiously waiting to see the finished result. My former life as a custom dressmaker and my life long love affair with arts and crafts has brought me to this new creative place of free-style sewing. I look forward to making more accessories and perhaps children’s garments.
As an Eco-Conscious artist/designer, I create one-of-a-kind apparel using repurposed clothing. Driven by my love for color and textiles, I bring together stylish silhouettes with artistic fabric collage. Each garment is a study in color and textural relationships. The inspiration is threefold: My love of beautiful textiles, my passion for color and my desire to create visual pleasing fabric compositions. The end result is fabulous wearable art!
