Domestic Construction

"SCAD", "artists"Katie Runnels5 Comments
The ingenious fabric room in the new Anthropologie Home catalog was the creation of the girls from Domestic-Construction,aka Trish Andersen and Maureen Walsh. These two amazing fiber artists became friends at Savannah College of Art and Design where I thought they were by far the most outstanding members of their class! They both moved on to NYC where Trish worked as display coordinator at Anthropologie on Fifth Avenue, and Maureen continued her clothing line, Uncle Bikes. After two years they decided to join forces and created Domestic Construction- a creative workshop that includes a line of magical deconstructed and repurposed clothing that is sold for now primarily at shopSCAD. They are planning a trunk show at shopSCAD-Savannah, April 29, 1-5 p.m. and shopSCAD-Atlanta May 2, 1-5 p.m. They are planning to have over 90 one-of-a kind dresses from their "Capsized" line inspired by shipwrecks and treasure chests, along with handmade housewares, cards, and accessories! I will be there with bells on! I am so excited for the chance to be in the midst of these two creative whirlwinds-and they really are only just getting started!
