Multi-colored glass marble mosaics from the station walls of 42nd Street are embroidered onto an asymmetrical dress to playfully pose the question- “Have we lost our marbles?”. The iconic blue seats on the train inspire the hue for flowing silk dresses while a completely embroidered suit brings to life the beauty of a mundane pattern New Yorkers walk upon everyday: the subway floor.
