Shadé Reneé in the New Project Studio

March 1, 2018 - April 30, 2018

Experimentation/Exploration in the New Project Studio

Experimentation/Exploration is a partnership with Olly Olly to provide support and mentorship for a local emerging artist. Founded by artist Jessica Kallista, Olly Olly is a new alternative artist-driven space located in the historic City of Fairfax.

Shadé Reneé, a graduate of Parsons School of Design, specializes in couture, fashion that is custom and made-to-measure. Her work is treated with opulence, love, and fierceness. She’s best known for hand-embroidery and bead work, dedicating more than 3,000 hours to this talent.

To Shadé, fashion is her art form, and fashion is the art of self. She sees her purpose as tailoring more access to creativity and creative living. Her work involves her client’s bodies and those individual nuances to create something that surpasses a simple “clothing” denotation to create “The Art of You.”
