Designer Jennifer Henry will be showcasing the clothing that she describes as “alternative material couture” inside the resort’s P3 Studio.
Live models and mannequins will be wearing her one-of-a-kind dresses. A photo exhibit will illustrate more of the 200 creations she has made since starting her Flockflockflock design business in 2009.
Instead of working with traditional fabrics, Henry crafts her garments from materials that seem straight out of a designers' challenge on “Project Runway.” They include cellophane and tissue paper, often “stitched” together using packing tape.
Henry will be in the gallery 6-11 p.m. Wednesdays-Sundays. She’ll be working on a gown that will make its debut at the finale of her residence. Guests can contribute by crinkling a piece of paper that will become part of the new dress.
