Miranda Caroligne represents the work of Miranda C. Burns. While Miranda’s talents range from performance art to philosophy, and installation art to authorship, her primary focus is in the creation of wearable art from salvaged textiles. She was raised in the nature of woodlands and oceans, nestled among a pile of scrap fabric with a needle in one hand and a magnifying glass in the other. Formally trained and licensed as a Physical Therapist (MSPT), Miranda has her own unique way of tailoring garments to enhance body form and mechanics.
Her designs have been available to the public since August 2001, and are proudly adorned by performers and fascinating individuals for the playfully dramatic and expressive qualities. Her fashion shows, performances and stunning one-of-a-kind creations have established her as a bright new star in San Francisco’s constellation of provocative artist-designers. She gives a fun peek inside this world in her book, Reconstructing Clothes for Dummies, August 2007, Wiley Publishing.
Miranda is currently based out of her own boutique, Miranda Caroligne - a living construction boutique, located in the Mission District, with a new & improved cooperative boutique, Trunk, formerly known as Pandora's Trunk, in the Lower Haight District of San Francisco.
