What's New From Who

Hanna-Zien-feltwork-WilliamsburgFierce and fabulous is what we're seeing a lot of these days. This weekend turns up the heat a bit with a whole new crop of fresh designers debuting their collections and playing show-and-sell at the market. Muza Designs is Polet Guzman's wild ride of design turned into wearable art, turning drawings into statement pieces by painting on cloth with rich and vibrant acrylic colors daring to be bold and fresh, just how we like it. Saturday only

Z & C by Shirley Cruz and Hanna Zien (photo left) continue the riff on wearable art with a collective of contemporary and vintage inspired clothing and one-of-a-kind hand made accessories many of which are made using felt. Saturday only

LuvStamp is, like the name suggests, a flirty and risque design foray to the other side. In their original email to us, designer Ingrid Estevez shared a design she called a "mash up of two of the best things ever: Marilyn Monroe and Silence of the Lambs." Say no more, say no more. Saturday only

Ever wonder why so many of those bright-eyed dolls at flea markets around the world are missing an eye? KT Ferris Creations has found a brilliant and borderline spooky new life for these one-eyed spirits, salvaging their sibling sight tools and creating blinking eye jewels. Something eerie but perfect for the season that 'tis upon us. Saturday only

Ever wonder what life in a PLUTOCRACY might look like? Designer Anitra Michelle will show you and she's got a thing for a whole new world order with designs and colors that are so much of that fierceness and fabulousness folks are looking for. Sunday only

We are downright OCD about those knick-knack throwback pieces that beg for the building of your own curiosity cabinet. And so vintage collector Logan Schoen of LJ Antiques comes at the right time with his objects from the 1940s and 50s - things like a WWII soldier's found pocket lighter, a mechanical cherry stoner, 1950s display bottles and much more. A lot to discover!  Sunday only
