Barksdale's 13 Assassins F/W 2012 Collection Fund Raiser

Friend and conceptual fashion designer Marianna Barksdale is making the jump from experimental fashion to ready-to-wear. We loved her previous work in which she succeeded in crafting beautiful dresses from dryer sheets and tarps amongst other non-traditional materials (you can see our previous coverage here) so it must be both a fairly easy, and exciting transition for her to work with more normal materials like... fabric. 

While Barksdale Studio gears up to create its Fall/Winter 2012 collection called, "13 Assassins," Marianna is raising money to fund the project through Kickstarter. Those that pledge money to the collection will get the opportunity to own some original Barksdale works which include concept art like the awesome 13 Assassins print above, or even a custom clothing item depending on the donation amount.
