New York Fashion Week February 2009 Scott Ian McFarland

Scott Ian McFarland, Fashion and Knitwear Design – Scott translated his skills as a formally trained sculptor to knitwear design. His experience with three-dimensional shapes, texture and color led him to experiment with knitting techniques. He made his own yarn by cutting lace fabric into strips and hand-knitting them to create the heavier knits for his coats. From Little Rock, Arkansas, Scott was inspired by Art Deco patterns, metal work, architecture and the androgynous styles from the 1920s. Blue Sky Alpacas, yarn designers and distributors in Minnesota, donated yarn for Scott’s collection.
