Born in 1953, Georgann DeMille has spent a lifetime sewing. She earned her BFA in 2013 from the University of Memphis, where she combined her love of sewing and art in whimsical garments that look wearable but aren’t. She uses castoff materials or materials intended for one use, like fabric dryer sheets, book pages, flower petals, magazines and vintage prints. Recent projects have incorporated deconstructed Depends undergarments or National Geographic magazines to create, for example, a Nat Geo Backpack and a Nat Geo Duffle.
