Our debut installation was a once dilapidated Volkswagen Beetle dressed up in a surprisingly cheerful and textural patchwork of clashing fabrics. Each textile swatch had been lovingly upholstered onto the vehicle’s surface, each stitch taking the derelict machine further away from the death knell of the scrapheap and closer to life as a treasured object. The Bug was purchased by Angela Missoni herself of Missoni Design with proceeds benefiting the Children of Haiti through The Fondazione Francesca Rave, N.P.H. Italia Onlus Fund.
