Sarah Montgomery's Profile

About

Based on the concept of functional, wearable art, Looking Glass Designs is an eco-conscious experiment in personal style by designer Sarah Montgomery. Eco-consciousness, in terms of our process and use of materials, means salvaging and re-utilizing leathers (read scalping old couches), vintage fabrics, metals, and anything shiny that catches the eye. We strive to give purpose to materials which might otherwise be considered useless. We love to play with scrap leather, old coins, random trinkets, feathers, vintage furs, bits of glass...For our creations to meet the definition of "functional art", a piece must be visually interesting and serve a purpose, a benefit to the user. Artistically, we seek to find a balance between intricacy and simplicity, femininity and masculinity, romance and anarchism.
