My StyleX design is a top to go with jeans, cutoffs, boots and other standard Austin fare. Each bustier top is designed to look as if the wearer is being consumed by a shark, but only if you look at it with imagination. The options are: 1) Subtle: Great White; 2) Sexy: Tiger Shark; 3) Wild: Hammerhead (my favorite!). These could also be dresses (fishtail, of course), but to me, the denim and boots are more SXSW.
This can be done in any fabric, but my sensibilities and time in Austin tell me that it’s best created out of recycled bankers’ business suits: gorgeous fabric that comes in sharky colors, and a message that’s very SXSW.
Repurposed business suits.
