Masterminds Finalist Jasmin Zorlu
This Thursday SF Weekly will be hosting Artopia, an art show at Project One featuring the 10 finalists in our annual Masterminds contest. That night, we'll award $2,500 grants to three lucky artists. In the meantime, we'll be previewing the works of the works of the finalists here on All Shook Down.
Using fur felt and -- seriously -- fish leather, Zorlu makes hats that recall flappers, freedom fighters, and femmes fatales. Convertible cloches, military caps infested with bows, and her signature Molecular Mermaid Helmet come from a broad background in clothing design, and a special interest in your head.
Zorlu is very much an artist with a specific vision, and we're excited she calls San Francisco home. Talent, skill, energy, and hard work mean this independent-minded milliner has a strong future in the fashion world.
