Description

This garment was inspired by the legend of the Green Man, an otherworldly figure who inhabited the lands and forests of medieval Europe (Raglan, 1939). Green Man appears in art, often as a foliate head carved into churches and other structures. He also appears in literature and folk tales; some even say that Robin Hood has his origins in the Green Man myth. The concept for this piece brings together medieval and modern aesthetics and techniques.
