Sometimes my designs become little more than vehicles for beautiful closures. That’s like saying that I love hot fudge so much I’m forced to eat ice cream, but if the shoe fits… I have actually been known to design extra openings in garments, purely as excuses for beautiful buttons and hooks. I often re-purpose pretty things as sweater closures that began life with different intentions. Such is the case with the fittings for Lotus Blossom. When I fell in love with these bracelet toggles, I immediately set about to make a sweater that would show them off. I knew right away that an asymmetrical opening would suit them best, and the rest seemed to fall into place.
