Shopping for something new? Correction: Shopping for something old made into something hip? Designer Michelle Knotz applied her artistic talents to creating cool, retro accessories for Girl Creations. Knotz took a few minutes away from her work to answer a few questions about her one-of-a-kind creations.
What is your design process? what inspires you?
I look for the ads that are most interesting to me, then I laminate them, following with my own paper-fold design. With some of them I add a button or embellishment with a magnetic closer. I found my art to be very therapeutic. This was especially true when I was severely injured in a car accident and was able to use my art as not only therapy but part of my recovery.
Where do you find your material for your accessories?
What advice would you give to people who would like to venture into the fashion/accessory business?
I would advise them to venture into something unique and different.
If you could pick one famous person to wear one of your accessories, who would that be?
