Inside the Studio: Grace Kubilius
Grace Kubilius creates sculptural works of art out of fabric. Although they are certainly wearable, she says that she doesn’t necessarily think of her work as fashion, but rather art that happens to take the form of clothing.
Grace began her residency with us in June after completing her BFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her studio is filled with finished pieces from her college days mixed with works in progress and fabric swatches just waiting to take their final form. In her work, Grace often uses unexpected materials and repurposes them to create clothing that is both surprising and beautiful. She has already drawn the attention of the St. Louis fashion community and will be exhibiting her work as part of FABRIC, the official St. Louis Fashion Week kick-off party.
We are eager to see how Grace’s work continues to evolve over the course of her residency, and you can, too, by stopping by our Grand Center studios and saying hi!
