BUSTLEWORSHIP is a one-woman wondershow of vintage collection, curation and re-creation. Midwest moonchild Jensina Endresen selects storied objects, shines their beautiful bones, and builds a whole new set of skin for them to live in. From vintage fur restyling and custom embroidery to antique assessment and leather conditioning, BUSTLEWORSHIP is a many-armed octopus aimed at salvaging the sacred and moving things from their forgotten past into a functional present.
BUSTLEWORSHIP aims to open up a dialogue about intentional, sustainable adornment in a world run rampant with synthetic, petroleum-based fibers and fast-fashion throwaways. By featuring vintage textiles with a focus on fur and leather, BUSTLEWORSHIP seeks to showcase and preserve natural-fiber garments produced by "lost-art" methods.
BUSTLEWORSHIP is available for custom design, costume appraisal, styling and personal acquisition requests.
