The New Conscious Consumer™ is always pleased to come across fashion that respects tradition, craft and sustainability. When it blends seamlessly into the art world, that's even better.

Her show, titled "The Barefoot Designer: A Passion for Radical Design and Community" is currently running at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.
