Carte de Visite Interview
Nicole Dextras grew up in Alexandria, Ontario, where her mother owned a clothing store. Interested in fashion, Nicole followed in her mother’s footsteps …to a certain point. After studying in British Columbia, Nicole began making clothes at her studio in Vancouver. But Nicole’s dresses are not made with yarn and fabric. Its materials are rather plants, flowers and twigs. The works of Nicole Dextras are exceptionally beautiful, but they are ephemeral. And it is the ecological message that the artist hopes to share with those who contemplate his work.
