My $10,000 Suit  (2018) is inspired by the  Nudie suits  worn by anyone who was anyone in country music or Hollywood from the 1940s on. I bought a vintage suit, had it tailored to fit me, and then embellished it by hand with appliqué and embroidery based on my own designs. We also applied thousands of rhinestones to the suit in a variety of colors. I had the help of several friends during the process: Cass Gannaway, James Gannaway, Alicia Halverson, Rachel Hobbs, Elspeth Iralu, and Diane Johnson.
