Fashion Friday: Brooke Ahana's military pins

DSC00145 Brooke Ahana is a big-city gal, but for the past seven years, the artist has spent summers in Telluride teaching kids and adult classes at Telluride’s Ah Haa School for the Arts, where a show of her abstractions, birds, and portraits of women was on display in July. One of Ahana’s Ah Haa classes was “Medal of Honor,” in which she taught students how to transform found objects into wearable art in the form of pins.

Kristin Holbrook of Two Skirts, Telluride Inside… and Out’s fashion expert, thinks Ahana’s mixed media pins made from old keys, pocket watches, chains and more are so cool, they are hot. They fall right in line with the military trend that emerged this Spring and continues into the Fall.

“The pins will look great with the Fall military trend. Wear them on olive jackets, pea coats and even jean jackets,” said Kristin.
