my mom said I had one of these suede vests with fringe when I was really little. I know I had one from a thrift store or somewhere when I was about 17, and cut it up and made it into a hippie purse with the fringe on the bottom. I don't know whatever happened to it, but it's still in my memory. I couldn't get this out of my head so I decided to make a few in different colors of suede for the FW collection. I love the idea of the different ways you could style this, and use with other layers. Planning a couple of different fur vests as well.
