So I had the extreme pleasure of interviewing San Francisco designer Tuan Tran last week. He is so incredibly talented. As I walked into his studio, there were gorgeous wire sculptures hanging everywhere from the ceiling, and he told me, ” Oh yes, I crochet telephone wire by hand and make those, I also use the same technique and create gowns-” OMG! WOW- take a look-
So he explains in episode 18 how he goes dumpster diving in order to find the telephone wire… And it just continues to get more interesting. He found underwear bands- and uses a japanese technique called Saki Ori where he weaves the underwear bands into dresses- take a look-
Tuan also talks about his trips to Vietnam where he learns how to weave raw silk and hemp. The result is astounding.
Tuan Tran is a true artist and his enthusiasm is contagious. IF you love art and or fashion then tune into episode 18 On Style!!!!
