Notes

I designed this piece!
I wanted to work with stainless steel wool again, and was feeling particularly inspired by Michael Faraday’s invention, and the designers from NY Fashion week Spring 2012. And so, this design was born!

In 1836 Michael Faraday realized that if he enclosed a grounded room in metal, electrical charges would only touch the outside --leaving the inside untouched by the charge. This sweater is named for the inventor of this hollow conductor which still used by scientists today.
