New York Fashion Week February 2008 Marie Potesta

Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia S.p.A and Loro Piana sponsored the yarn for Marie’s knitwear collection in which she utilized the ideas of Japanese art forms origami and noshi (a good luck token made of folded strips of paper) by manipulating her woven fabrics. Op Art is shown as an influence in her contrasting use of black and white. Marie was born in Dearborn, MI and raised in Grosse Ile, MI.
