The Ginko Jacket came about from Sofiya wanting something very special for her son’s wedding. She’s an artist and the vision of a ginko leaf jacket came to her, and so she came to me.
I spent some time after our first meeting, looking at images of ginko leaves for inspiration. Sofiya wanted a large collar. After the first fitting, it became clear she wanted a soft, rippling collar, tho the ripple effect came during a follow-up fitting.
Custom, when done as a form of dance, of collaboration, can bring an exciting outcome, like this jacket. Thank you, Sofiya, for the dance.
