"If you want to get noticed, just wear it in public. I’ve been stopped on the street, in parking lots, elevators, concert halls, and restaurants wearing my unique-one-of-a-kind felted jacket. People ask what it is made of, where I got it, and if they can touch the fabric!"
Lyndie N, San Francisco, Sept. 2017
"I had never thought of “wearable art” before I attended Illusions Lab Fashion show in Vancouver. OooooLala! Now I Wear Art! and it’s so much fun."
Genvieve U, Vancouver, March 2017
"I wore one of Jean’s mid-thigh Jackets and petal-like, sheer fabric hat that picked up just one color of the jacket and have NEVER had so many compliments in my 50-year life!"
Victoria W., NYC, Feb, 2018
"Illusion’s Lab & Jean’s design and crafting are beyond compare. I have a dress, jacket, and “quirky” skirt. Each feels as if it were “made just for me”. That’s not the only thing! I’m into protecting the planet and Illusions Lab considers environmental safety as well as sustainability in selecting their materials AND in their production process. To me that’s so important in our current planetary fix. Kudos!!"
Patricia O., NYC, Sep. 2018
"Have never felt so “me” in my merino wool and natural silk dress created by Illusions Lab."
Isabelle M, Vail, July 2018
"Your crafts-womanship is astonishing! Love my unique “wearable art” jacket."
