states of dress

I stumbled across artist Robin Barcus Slonina's work and was intrigued at her newest installation project 'states of dress.' I love the creativity and using our nation as her inspiration!
While she has completed only 6 states, I already see the vision and think this will be an exciting collection when complete!
Take a peek at the work done thus far....

So what do you think? Pretty clever right?
I wonder what she'll pull out for my home state of Wisconsin and my current home of South Carolina?

Amazing! I love them, especially Wyoming--so gorgeous. I'm so eager to see the rest of the states.

Do you think she will make a cheese dress for Wisconsin? Very cool. It's a like a Project Runway challenge.

I can't wait for the project to be complete! But I have to say Wyoming is my favorite!
