The Patchwork Hooded Cape by Lindsay Rickman

One-of-A-Kind: Patchwork Hooded Cape by Textile Artist Lindsay Rickman
This is the only photo in my possession my premier modeling stint for the Bows and Arrows Hooded Cape Fashion Show. Of the four score and seven photographers that swarmed the joint, there's been no hide nor hair of any photos, or videos to commemorate the event. So I post this lonely iPhone pic that someone snapped while I was outside waiting for my turn on the catwalk. Lindsay did an incredible job creating her capes- this one is a beautifully worked patchwork made out of recycled fabrics, with a grey jersey lining. If there's ever any real photos or videos of the show, I'll be sure to post them here on the Citizen.

That cape is divine!! The colours are mad, mad, mad - which is what I like about it. Too bad there are not more photos, but just this one is very satisfying.

So cool to finally see you in the cape! I look at all those triangles and can appreciate the meticulous work that must have gone into fashioning it.
