A decade of Brilliant Stranger ClothingIncluding Spring and Summer 2016 - Eco-Friendly Artisan Clothing by Dawn Patel
Brilliant Stranger clothing is the culmination of over 30 years of exploration, experimentation and invention. Featuring small batch runs of original wearable art, it is a line of clothing that stands apart from the crowd. In a decade the Brilliant Stranger line has grown from funky OOAK up-cycled creations to a line of small batch artisan clothing.
Brilliant Stranger clothing is inspired by nature to honor the earth as well as our own bodies, made with eco-friendly materials including organic cotton, linen, and vintage sheets combined with sustainable practices such as up-cycling and natural/low-impact dyes.
The artistic vision behind Brilliant Stranger clothing thrives on constant invention and change. Utilizing playful dye techniques, quirky block prints, free hand stitching, painting, and unconventional sewing techniques, I choose not to rely on old formulas and mass production. I would rather be breathing in the spark of new ideas.
