I make clothing for superheroines!

Miranda Caroligne represents the work of Miranda C. Burns. While Miranda’s talents range from performance art to philosophy, and installation art to authorship, her primary focus is the creation of wearable art from salvaged textiles. She was raised in the nature of woodlands and oceans, nestled among a pile of scrap fabric with a needle in one hand and a magnifying glass in the other. Formally trained and licensed as a Physical Therapist Miranda has her own unique way of tailoring garments to enhance body form and mechanics.

Miranda’s creations are based on much more than aesthetics. Her work is infused with concepts of individual self-expression, DIY practices, realistic body image, diminishing waste, supporting local economies and sustainable living. This ethos is masterfully woven together to recall the forms of yesteryear and the function of today with an otherworldly edge -- a heartfelt core philosophy she calls “neoarchaic.”

Miranda’s designs have been available to the public since August 2001, and are proudly adorned by performers and fascinating individuals for the playfully dramatic qualities. Her fashion performances and stunning one-of-a-kind creations have established her as a bright star in San Francisco's constellation of provocative artist-designers. She gives a fun peek inside this world in her book, “Reconstructing Clothing for Dummies.” After 5 years running her namesake boutique in the Mission, and just over 3 years behind the Haight Street cooperative, Trunk; Miranda relocated to the artist live-work community, Developing Environments. Here she refocuses her energies towards her private commission clientele and a select number of Bay area boutiques. After becoming a wife and mom in 2015, she soon added a brand new location to her list of life experience... moving back to the woodlands of the Applegate area in Southern Oregon. She currently travels between here and her studio in San Francisco, getting the best of both worlds for her family and her creative work.
