Watercolor paintings for the body – that may be the best way to describe the clothing created by Alice Waese. Her collections are filled with flowing garments that reflect the organic shapes of nature and the free flowing nature of watercolor paints as they are applied. This is no surprise given her efforts in both the areas of watercolor painting as well as jewelry design based upon shapes taken directly from nature.
Her pallet is muted, and each garment is treated artistically – like sculpture. There is an absolute intent that object is not simply an item designed well, but is a hand-crafted piece of art.
