Elena Stonaker's Shamanistic Garments
Elena Stonaker is a fine artist, fashion designer, quilter and all-around artisan. She makes incredibly beautiful and bizarre wearable sculptures from chopped up wonderlands of fabric, jewels and sculpted forms, creating a hybrid of sculpture and fashion. These creations have an inherently shamanistic aesthetic, rife with ancient symbolism revamped in contemporary brights and bolds. Elena’s work also exudes a playful sense of sexuality.
