Through the Breach in My Garden Wall
Come this way, please.
Dreams are brought to Light here.
Concealed amongst dewy fantasies,
Vaporous days gone by.
Vivid blooms & Riotous infusions,
Bewildered wraiths within a verdant arena.
Gossamer petals of Majickal Bud,
Wafting flutter of euphony.
Tripping footfall of Capricious Faeries.
Only believe. Come this way.
Dreams are brought to Life here.
Designer & Creator of
Custom Theatric, Historic, Fantasy & Dance Garments
I have sculpted with Fabric & Thread for over forty years. That is, after all, what Garment Design & Construction is – Sculpture: a three-dimensional piece of artful manifestation; figure-shaping; round or in relief.
Though I don’t commonly chisel marble or model clay, such ornamentation striding from my studio more often than not does, indeed, change the shape & contour of the frame upon which it hangs! Some might call them “costumes”. However…
A Scally Rag is NOT a mere Costume!
A Scally Rag is a fabricated, functional Flight of Fancy, Historic, Theatric, Phantasmal or Danceable, in three (or more) dimensions!
A Scally Rag is a Sculpted Garment endowed with Permanence; an article of Genuine Apparel intended to be around to enhance you for as long as you choose – certainly more than one or two uncomfortable, flashy wearings; a facet of your deliberately evolving Wearable Art Collection.
Nor is a Scally Rag a meager “put-on”. As opposed to a costume, the Sculpted Garment reflects & enhances its Wearer. A Scally Rag is your complement – a bidden Alter Ego, Soul Mate, Doppelganger, if you will – by which your mindfully ensconced Personality now comes full-circle.
Scally Rags lay bare your Glimmering Confidence among yards & yards of Hopeful Wishful Dreaming, Tacit Theatrics & /or Reminiscent Cognizance, connecting you with a much more glorious, colourful past…& other Flights of Fancy!
A Scally Rag is YOU on a Hanger!
So, now we’ve got that out of the way…
