Michelle Sabol hand etching plexiglass

MCAD alum Michelle Sabol will see two of her plexiglass dresses walk in the Modern Worlds Fashion Show in Pittsburg. The first dress, Crick, is an allusion to the way many area residents pronounce the word creek, and Moon Lorn was inspired by the late Malcolm Parcell's home and studio near Prosperity, Pennsylvania. 

Talking to the Observer-Reporter, Sabol says, “the fashion show changes the paradigm of how people interact with art because the art, in this case, is mobile, and the person wearing the dress becomes, in effect, the art gallery. These are haute couture pieces that are actually wearable art, not something you’d wear to the Meadows or Crown Center Mall.”
