Mask up Artfully

4 Dec

I’m amazed at some of the creative, artful masks. Not only can you stay safe wearing a mask, you can support local artists and businesses. I’m going to highlight three talented Detroiters, who are making masks.  Not only are they impressive artists, they are also accomplished writers.  I’m proud to say I know them personally.

Karen Buscemi is the founder the Detroit Garment Group (DGG), a registered 501(c)(3) public charity, providing education and opportunities for Michigan’s fashion community. She is also the CEO of Detroit Sewn, a woman-owned small business manufacturing PPE equipment including masks. Detroit Garment Group and Detroit Sewn are keeping people employed while providing a needed service. Please note the vital safety information about mask wearing on the Detroit Sewn website.

Megan Swoyer is a watercolor artist. Her designs are colorful, exuberant and just happy. You can find them on scarves, tea towels, notepads and yes masks. Click here for the 2020 gift guide. 

Dominic Pangborn is best known in Detroit for his men’s ties. But his artistry goes way beyond ties and way beyond Motown. His collections are amazing.  Please check out his website here.  Tote bags, scarves, pocket squares and just some of his creative designs. Here is a photo of a mask and matching scarf. 

These three artists, Karen Buscemi, Megan Swoyer and Dominic Pangborn, all deserve a post written just about them. I will in the future. 

For now, stay safe and mask up!

Detroit Designer: Dominic Pangborn

Dominic Pangborn designs are dynamic, bold and original. Wear a scarf or a necktie, and you will be stopped on the street with compliments from strangers — even in New York. I know because I have a few scarves. Dominic is a talented and passionate Detroit designer with an international flair. The swirl of colors or geometric patterns are dazzling. You’ll find his designs at the Detroit Metro Airport and now in the Michigan Design Center in Troy, which is open to the public. In his latest interview on Fox2, he says he will expand his accessories and home products. His personal journey as a Korean adoptee is just as fascinating as his artistry.
