Marie Cordella: Costume & Ready-to-wear

“Blondie” – detail

Originally uploaded by SOFennell

Last weekend I went to the First Friday art walk and went to Artspace. The first exhibit in the upfront gallery was Chapter and Verse by Marie Cordella. This is the first I’d seen of her work, but later in the weekend, a friend from Meredith said she’d been a guest in one of her classes.

The Artspace website says Cordella’s “works span two categories: ready-to-wear and costume. Cordella’s collection displays a highly diversified aesthetic, and a contrast of materials and forms. Displayed in chronological order Cordella belies that the works demonstrate the development over time of her craft and her fine tailoring skills. Each creation is a detailed study of technique, composition, intuition, and the history of fashion.”
