Artist Bio / Statement
My name is Irena Levkovich and I am fiber artist and designer of seamless felt clothes. I love to work with Dharma dyeing products, wool fibers and silk fabric!
Each year I participate at DC Fashion Week on my youtube channel you can see video of this shows : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJD6gPQTid0&list=PLdCDvhJH20J-fo10g7tWb9lqQj-jtJORK
The idea of creating clothes from the nature-born fibers, like silk and wool, is an extension of my philosophy: to share with others the energy that I draw from the beauty of the world.
I always try to bring attention to the recklessness of our consumerist society. My motto is simple: Do No Harm.
My creations combine several equally important for me concepts: on one hand clothes must look beautiful, feminine and elegant, and on the other, they must be comfortable to wear and produced with eco-friendly technology.
By combining these seemingly contradicting concepts, I try to create a unique, one of a kind product. I make women make a step towards the harmony with the world, the step that they make without sacrificing their comfort or elegance.
There is no negative energy in my creations: eco-fur doesn't require slaughtering an animal - it is still roaming around and will make many other people happy, beautiful and warm throughout its life. People, who choose to respect other living beings.
It is a simply achievable pleasure, to feel that you are in a harmonious balance with your environment. And all you have to do for it, is to have in your wardrobe something, that keeps the warmth of caring hands and the beauty of the nature.
