ART to WEAR Concept

Nona designs one-of-a-kind clothes that are created from her original photoart. Her intention is to create beautiful works of art that women and men of all ages, shapes and sizes can wear. She does this by a unique process, contemplating her artwork and allowing the clothing design to emerge in a way that compliments both the art and the body. Her artwork is then printed in rich colors on a variety of beautiful fabrics using special technology. Nona then cuts & designs the pieces and they are sewn by local seamstresses. Each is unique.
