A few weeks back, I did a Monday Morning Inspiration post on lacing details. So many of you found the garment pictured below quite interesting. Yes, the yoke is from a pair of shoes!!
After I did the post, I decided to Google the image and try and learn a little more about the person behind the design. Her name is Adrienne Antonson. She has a clothing line called State and she is also a very accomplished sculpture artist. I found her to be so fascinating and thought that you too may enjoy a closer look.

Adrienne was featured in a Design Sponge article which you can see HERE. My favorite picture from the article was a shot of her sewing machine.
I think that the shot of her sewing machine coincides with her design philosophy.
"For the label of clothing I design, STATE, I choose to use sustainable materials and local manufacturing. All garments are made in the New York Garment District, or in the STATE studio in rural Georgia. Each piece is one of a kind or part of a limited batch, and is finished off with hand cut tags, natural dyes, hand painted patterns, and other sculptural and unexpected details. STATE aims to create pieces that you wear for years – season to season, trend to trend. They’re practical, utilitarian, and unique.
Her sculpture work is fascinating. You can see more of her work HERE and learn about the medium that she uses to create these pieces.
Have a wonderful day!
