San Francisco Chronicle: Vibrant art of textile design booming in SF fashion scene
"Why frame art when you can wear it? Increasingly, collaborative-minded fashion designers are working with painters and illustrators on vibrant textiles that double as collectible prints. Locally, the movement is led by Gravel & Gold and Nooworks, well-known Mission boutiques rounding out their eye-catching in-house collections with partnerships between the owners and artists they admire. Their graphically rich textiles become flattering silhouettes — including leggings, dresses, jumpsuits and quilted jackets — that interweave San Francisco’s fashion and art scenes."
