HONEOYE FALLS — The Rabbit Room hosted a full house, Thursday afternoon, which gathered for a fashion show presented by the Lower Mill business’s Talulah’s Fancy and Friends, and Salon Fringe.
The fashion show, titled Felted Fashions, featured clothing created by South Korean native Jae Hee Lee, a fabric maker and fashion designer.
“It’s wearable art,” said Lee’s sister speaking on her behalf. “It is inspired by nature, and Jae Hee’s ethnic background.”
Lee, who is 64, has been creating her own fabric out of her home since March of 2011, using a felting process. Yet she is no stranger to the world of fashion, working as a vice president in the South Korean couture industry for two decades.
“She is very familiar with women’s fashion,” said Lee’s sister. “But this is a new career for her.”
The show has been in the works for the past month, when Lee’s sister approached Talulah’s owner Tamara Stopinski with the idea of exhibiting her work in her store. However Stopinski thought a fashion show would be more suitable to present her clothing.
“This is the first collaborative show we’ve done with her,” said Stopinski. “It was really great. It kind of just took on a life of its own.”
