Recently exhibited at The Bojagi Forum in Seoul, Korea, Scarlet Fever is an ode to an era when elegance was prized. I found a way to integrate vintage black gloves — a gift from a generous friend — a vintage purse and vintage jewelry. The components were so delicious, it was a sensual experience working with them. I almost expect to see a long cigarette holder with smoke rings coming out!

Bojagi is a form of Korean wrapping or patchwork.
