High-waisted leather pants & appliqué jacket

Bruce Papas designed and made this leather jacket and pants from his home in Titirangi, Auckland. The appliqué work is done using scraps of fabric finished with satin stitched edges. Bruce included some fabric from the scraps of a stretch velvet dress that he made for Meegan's mother, Renee. Read more about Bruce Papas in the New Zealand Fashion Museum publication, A Certain Style.
